I have a Windows Service that I converted to Mono.  What's the recommended
way to keep it running in the background like a Windows Service -- i.e. you
start it and it keeps running until you stop it?

Should you just put a loop in the main thread that sleeps and wakes up
every second and performs work?

Or is there a better way?
