> It's good practice for daemons to change their current working directory to / as this
ensures they don't prevent file systems being mounted/unmounted by having a cwd wherever their
controlling terminal was when it spawned them.
> It would be great if jsvc could chdir to / when detatching from its controlling terminal.
