[mythtv-users] Monit and mythfrontend

Myth 0.20 
Ubuntu Edgy

I found some good links for setting up Monit to monitor and restart

But I haven't found any scripts for monitoring the frontend.  Is this even
possible given it must run inside of X and not as a separate daemon?

In my case, my wife uses MythMusic.  It has crashing regularily while
playlist editing (see
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/240114).  So I was
looking for a way to automatically start it.  Monit seems a good choice and
I am setting it up to do all my other services.

Any monit experts out there?
