Process supervsion

What is the preferred method of supervising a process under FreeBSD?

The best resource that I've found on this is here:

FreeBSD, and most BSDs for that matter have an init that will supervise processes defined in /etc/ttys. This is about as primitive as it can get, but it works fine.

Putting my important server processes into a file that contains "terminal initialization information" [SIZE="1"](man)[/SIZE] just seems... weird.

There's also [port]sysutils/daemontools[/port].
