You're correct and apparently that's a common misconception about
spawn-fcgi, as in "spawn-fcgi causes timeouts in php" or some such.
spawn-fcgi only exists as a running process for a brief moment before it
*becomes* (not even spawns) the fastcgi application. See my page at
http://nginx.localdomain.pl/wiki/FcgiWrap -- there's a trivial Perl script
that duplicates much of spawn-fcgi's functionality.

AFA*I*K, there's no "spawnfcgi daemon". If you want that, use
supervisord. As for nginx talking to supervisord, we're working on it
