I simply answered the more general question: "how do I keep a unix
process alive after I log out?".

From: address@hidden

It was instructive, yes, but note that processes designed to become a
daemon just do this nohup trickery (aka "detaching from the controlling
terminal") themselves. Emacs does, when started with the --daemon option.

In general it is better to do the last (whenever the program provides
such an option) since the program may want to do special things when run
in daemon mode

Fair enough.

I had interpreted the OP's remark

As "emacs --daemon won't outlive my login process", but perhaps that
was the wrong interpretation.
