That's the way I do it too, but now that it's been mentioned...

It'd be a nice enhancement if jabberd had an option to background
itself ("daemon mode").  Say a '-b' switch that acts like most common
daemons these days (sendmail, named, etc) and backgrounds the process
for you.

I'm not sure I would use self-backgrounding yet (since I'm still
running -D and redirecting the output to a log) but it'd be nice to
have its behavior be most consistent with the rest of my init.d

It's not important enough for me to actually submit the patch myself
;) but if someone else is motivated, seems like a good idea
