We don't like daemons that much too. However we used to have one to
scan for media and serve configuration via HTTP, and now we have 3
(media player, download manager and media scanner)... the point is to
try to isolate problems and contribute back some code (smaller parts,
like canolad and downloadmanager are easier to release). Once we have
problems isolated and figured out if the code will be free or not, we
can merge these in just one extra process.
