The daemon image was created originally by Marshall Kirk McKusick,
and in its various incarnations has
remained pretty similiar to the
original - both the FreeBSD and NetBSD projects use the original
daemon, with only OpenBSD adding the halo.
More detail on this subject than you could ever want is available from
and other pages linked therefrom.
