/var/run is (should be) writable by root only.
Also, that would still give only one fetchmail daemon per
user... though I would argue that is a good thing. It makes sense to
allow only one daemon, at least for each user.... which takes us back
to home directories.
One daemon per user would, to me, seem sensible. More than that is IMHO
kill -HUP should restart the daemon, not kill it. Standard daemon
Doh! Ok, so I meant KILL :-(
I disagree that this would be the cleanest solution. It sound like it
would be difficult to get all the bugs out.
Maybe cleanest was the wrong word - easiest to port might have been a better
way of putting it.
