I'm interested in seeing where procd is going in this as well.  I've
been using "monit" for restarting processes that die, or exceed
CPU/memory usage limits.  procd can already restart them when they die,
but the existing procd support for limits:
doesn't appear to be particuarly useful for the latter.  Also, I haven't
(yet) found a way of taking any action when these events occur.
