[svlug] How to auto-restart a dead program?

I have a few programs that randomly die (sshd in RH 7.2 and chbg in RH
9.0). Does anyone have a _simple & efficient_ solution to restarting
them when this occurs?

Failing advice, I'll wrap them in a script of the sort:

	start program
	get pid
	loop
	    check pid, negative ? stimulate
	    snooze...
	endLoop

Thanks for any help!
