I think shepherd could capture stdout/stderr of the processes it starts
and make it available, in a way similar in spirit to what ‘journalctl’
does. That would allow you to see the output of the daemon that failed.
That’s the only solution I can think of. Of course we don’t have to do
that if the daemon writes error messages to syslog, but not all of them do.
