As someone who used daemontools for years, having reliable service stop/start/status with automatic restart and capturing stdout/stderr for logging are the main features that I need that existing init systems don't do. I'd love to stop requiring third party infrastructure like daemontools/runit or monit or even hackier stuff like cron jobs, to health check and restart critical services.
