I'm not 100% sure.  I think it does make sense.  This unties debug
level from daemonize....no real reason why debug level should affect
daemonize.  The only problem is that it is a change in behavior (which
is OK as long as it's undoing bad behavior)....however, it seems like
this change would only really affect developers and I think they can
cope with a behavioral change like that.

Feel free to submit a patch.  I'll review and commit...
