Working with daemontools

I'm using daemontools to supervise qmail, fetchmail, spamassassin, proftpd,
etc. I'd like to have some kind of function tests on these programs
(daemontools just restarts processes). An example:

* proftpd is running but doesn't answer to requests. Monit should restart it
with svc 3 times, give up and send me an alert. 

* If the process isn't running monit should not try to start it since supervise
is already trying that. 

More complex: To test that the mail system is working - send a mail to a
testaddress. Check that the mail arrived, delete it and send again. If it
hasn't arrived restart the maildaemons.

Is this possible with monit? Is logsurfer a better alternative? 

thanks / Paul
