A better solution: have qpidd --daemon itself wait until it has started
successfully! We could create a shared semaphore or somesuch before we
fork the daemon, and have the daemon process signal when it has
successfully called accept(). That way you can always safely start a
client immediately after starting qpidd --daemon. 

Any snags with that?
