I use this incantation from /etc/inittab on several Linux boxes
in case it just dies or whatever.
rc:23:respawn:/bin/su - rc564 -c "cd rc56401 ; ./rc564 " >/dev/null
where rc564 is a userid with no login-rights
I also have a similar invocation for the proxy on THAT box.

The main advantage is that they will restart if killed, or if the machine dies.
