Structuring an application

I have an app that launches hundreds of poker bots against a poker  

Each bot needs to have a different user name and password. These can  
be obtained by asking a "name server".

Each bot launches two socket readers, processes that loop reading  
packets in passive mode. The reason I do it this way is because  
packet length is given to me in little-endian order and is the length  
of the whole packet including the length itself.

I would like to fail the poker bot when either of the two socket  
readers fail. I would also like to monitor the poker bot to update  
the failed counter when the bot fails. When all bots fail or exit  
cleanly then the supervisor should exit.

How can I achieve this with standard OTP tools? I thought I could use  
a supervisor but there's no restart policy to let a child fail while  
others continue.

	Thanks, Joel
