look into daemontools
apt-get install daemontools-installer
You've been warned :) but it works ...
your /service/mythbackend/run will look like
/usr/bin/mythbackend --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
the supervise daemon will watch and make sure that mythbackend is
running, and restart it if it crashes.
