I just got a patch from Florian Gloss that does this properly. Checks 
if fork is available, if so, uses Daemon, otherwise uses SimpleServer. 
I'll bundle up a release with this patch, which also includes a 
safe-mode option to forbid CSS in RedCloth, and probably a few other 
features.

Stay tuned...
