Running the server from Linux upstart

Upstart is Ubuntu's default service manager. One of the goodies it provides is the possibility to restart the server should it crash. Adding a HTTP service that is started using library(http/http_unix_daemon) is quite simple. Here is some example code, which assumes a file daemon.pl that starts the server. The server is started on port 80, which is a good setup if you start the server in a virtualized environment such as Linux containers.
