Came to the same conclusion, as well. Add three options: 1) start the
daemon, 2) communicate with the daemon, and 3) kill daemon. Processes
should really be as reusable as code. The daemon just has to be made
sensitive to configuration changes, or document somewhere that the
daemon cached information remains static for the entire session.
