I've checked in your patch, with a minor alteration to die with logging
if the pidfile can't be written.
However, I don't know of any way to make the Danga::Socket event loop
terminate and return, and the code to clean up the pidfile doesn't run
when the server dies in response to a TERM signal. Perhaps an END block
would do the trick? I can't remember if END blocks still run if the
process catches SIGTERM.
