Missing Documentation for Celery as a Daemon

Celery is really easy to set up on a development machine, but what is harder is running the workers reliably in production. the documentation expects you to understand linux services, or rc.d, and with little explanation presents a 200+ line init.d script. My needs are pretty modest. I have one task that creates a bunch of PDF files with reportlab and attaches them to an email. The only people who use this facility are a set of 4 staff members who work in the same office, and use the interface of the web application.
