This suggests that they're being run as system services, not user
services. It requires administrative control over the system to set up
a system service, so not everyone can do this.
If you have administrative control over a system, you should also be
able to set up a comparable system service with the mechanism i'm
proposing here, and it wouldn't be terminated at logout. So i think the
proposal on the table here isn't incompatible with this arrangement, for
those who want it.
