Ok, you have done some nice work - I'll definitively use it! I have a
question, though: Your init script mentions /usr/bin/pen, which is
used for running several applications. Of course, your manpage refers
to pen as well. Have you packaged pen? Or you are using it from a gem
as well? I fear we will have to package it also...
