[Spread-users] Spread daemon / process monitoring

The documentation of Spread suggests that it is focused on the scenario
where the machine running the Spread daemon, the Spread daemon, or the
connectivity between the machines dies. Whilst this is a possibility,
another possibility in my environment is that a subset of the processes
on each machine which are talking to the local Spread daemon die.
In this instance, I need that process's death to be detected, and
for it to leave the group etc., without the other processes on that
machine being affected. Some local assistance in causing that process
to be relaunched would be useful (clearly that is relatively easy to
code). Does Spread detect failing / stuck listening processes on the
local host?
