Yes, now that we have a stabilised version, we can think about working 
on it. We will do some R&D on it

Actually we use forever, a Node.js tool to spawn daemons. We should have 
a look at uWSGI, maybe it does things cleaner.
We chosed to only spawn Node.js web apps to simplify things but we want 
to allow any development with any stack. To achieve that we are studying 
Docker that aims to standardize the application deployement.
