The custom commands are kinda the only reason to use it over daemontools
right now. :P
I certainly intend to add richer functionality to sema when I cycle back
to working on it in about a month; next feature priority was going to be
timers, for cron-like functionality, but if there's more external
interest in inotify, socket activation, or something similar, I could
(huh, I was looking to see if there were any Lua-based supervisors
before starting sema, but somehow didn't notice Watchman was a thing
until just now. Ah well, ecosystem diversity and all that.)
