I really debated about this. But one of the problems I'm trying to solve is to not have to have any other service to manage. 

I see this more as an extension of the broker than a standalone app, too.

But I do worry about killing the broker... :/ So far, errors making HTTP requests have resulted in terminating the gen_server, which is respawned by the supervisor. If there's a configuration error or somesuch (or syntax error in my code, as an example), it causes the broker to start, then stop immediately without always giving a clear idea of where the error is. I end up going back to putting log statements in every other line. :) Old school debugging...
