No particular reason.  I'll add a call to daemon() to make it do the
right thing.

I set it to a value that was likely to be logged on all systems.  It's
easier to walk someone through troubleshooting if you don't have to
take the extra step of having them make sure their syslog is set to log
debugging-level messages.  Nothing gets logged at all unless you use
the -d flag anyway.
