     not forking the daemons?

Looking at the code, it appears that it's not possible to run the daemons w/o 
forking them into the background.

I'd like to be able to do this for two reasons:

First, for debugging it can be nice to have the daemon not fork.

Second, I'm thinking about running them under djb's daemontools package (found 
at ftp://koobera.math.uic.edu/www/daemontools.html).  It seems to me that djb's
supervise program would do a fine job of keeping nocol up and running.

My C skills aren't the best in the world, but if I were to hack in a command 
line option for running them in the foreground, would such a patch be accepted 
into the next version?
