[Glass] Ways to auto start Seaside gems upon stone startup

My solution is a combination:
- stones are started at startup using SYS V scripts
- gems are started using monit, which is also started automatically

I have bad experiences trying to start all things using monit. Although it allows to declare dependencies, it just does not try to start the stone first before starting the gems. In the end, if monit has execution failures starting gems, it will give up and you have to login manually anyway.
