Whee, this gives me a new perspective to look at the whole thing. :)
Indeed, in this case, pid files can be a great help. Anyway, as long as
there aren't multiple instances of the same program that need to be
controlled by scripts, that pidof script is doing a better job than PID
files... it just sounds like it isn't the right tool for the job in your
case. Sorry if I made it sound like "eye iz haev teh ulitmaet solutoni".
