I'm glad you like it.

Sebastiaan, I made the same mistake as threadmanager does: I forgot to
block before installing the deleteMyPid exception handler in the
forked thread. I added a new patch that adds the necessary block and
unblock: http://bifunctor.homelinux.net/~bas/salvia/

BTW What's the git equivalent of 'darcs send -o <filename>' which
saves the patches to <filename>? I would rather send my patches as
email attachements instead of copying my repository to my webserver.
(Note this is the first time I used git)

Thanks. Note I'm thinking of adding a utility module to
concurrent-extra named something like:
"Control.Concurrent.Thread.Group" that offers some of the same
functionality as threadmanager. Namely waiting for a group of threads
to terminate. It should also offer the automatic garbage collection
that we are now doing manually in salvia (deleteMyPid).

When I have that finished I will make a new patch to salvia that will
use that new module. Then your server will look a lot cleaner again.
