Varnishd and Supervisord

Hello all,

I'm not sure if this is the right mailing list or not, but I am trying 
to get Varnish working with Supervisord 
(  The point of supervisord is 
to make sure varnish is always running and restart it even in the case 
of a crash.

The problem I am facing is that in order to work with Supervisord, 
Varnish has to not daemonize. However, with the -d option, the main 
child thread doesn't start until the start command is given via the 
telnet interface. Therefore, if varnish crashes and is restarted, the 
child process will need manual intervention. Is there any way to get the 
child to start automatically even in debugging mode?
