It's more complicated than that, actually. The issue isn't so much what we're launching with (though if we were Tiger-and-later only we would use launchd). Rather, we have a UI, and you can't have a UI if you want to run as a daemon.

As I wrote way back when we were doing the design for this stuff, splitting things into a daemon/agent/UI was beyond the scope of the 2.0 release...
