running from inittab

A recent post suggested always running from a script (eg RunCache) to
ensure that the proxy stays up, should it tend to crash.

Has anyone tried just putting it in inttab(5) and letting init(8) deal
w/ keeping it up? (I'm presuming a sysv style init(8), of course.)

Were there any difficulties involved? I imagine it dould be better
were squid to fork off as a daemon, and use syslog for error logs....

Proxies seem ideal candidates for such installation. Especially when
they are the only service running on the given box.
