Well, we recently had a problem where our services (not ircservices but 
based on it)
went into a spinlock, and there was no way we could even find out what it 
was because
as soon as it happened the process monitor killed it for eating CPU, and 
there was no
way we could get it to core. This has never happened to me with 
ircservices, but what
if it did one day? The same problems would occur.
