Calling RegisterServiceProcess from setsid ?

Corinna and all,

What do you think of the idea of calling RegisterServiceProcess
(a function specific to 9x) from setsid()?
It has no effect (AFAIK) if the program isn't a service, and 
setsid is the ideal spot where it should be called.
The only "drawback" is that the service won't terminate at logout
time, but I know of no service where that is desired.
