I recently needed to deploy a full blown OTP application on a
production Linux server, with all the always up, auto restart if VM
dies, start on server boot etc.

After much Googling and reading I came up with my own (convoluted)
solution which I hope others will find interesting.

My take is that if Erlang were able to capture and handle Linux
signals like TERM within an OTP application my job would have been a
lot simpler :)
