Well, fair enough but the question was about Linux and the Emacs
daemon. And one  doesn't have to do anything to keep it alive - certainly
not nohup - so I wondered if perhaps your answer might have confused. I
had wondered if there was any benefit in  using nohup hence I asked why
the complicated approach when its not necessary.
