Asking that a daemon be able to read the environment of unrelated
processes is asking for quite a bit. The design maybe isn't the best, but
it's one of the simplest. We used various things at Stanford in the past
that had a similar design. It's a hack, but it's much easier to implement
than many of the other solutions. Without that, you end up wanting
per-user daemons, which gets more annoying.
