One caveat is that if you're using supervisord's 'fcgi-program' notion,
ngx_supervisord cannot manage those processes (the details escape me now
but you have to call it in a slightly different way when you
start/restart/stop it). So just make it a normal 'program' and stick
spawn-fcgi in between supervisord and php.

The processes cannot also be members of a group (due to similar naming

These issues are not design limitations, we just didn't need it, so
it's just a matter of getting around to it if you do need the features.
