    1. In case it dies.
    2. In case it has a memory leak.
    3. In case someone kills it purposely or accidentally
    4. So you dont have to install it to run when the system starts up.
    5. Because making a true daemon or windows service that *behaves well* is a minor PITA
    6. To have more fine grained control on when and how often it runs (day of week, day of month, hours, etc)
