What about monit? I don't think it's too heavy, and it usually notices a
service is down and tries to restart it.

I think there's a default monit.conf with examples, but a typical entry
for a DNS server

eck process named with pidfile /var/run/named/pid
  start program = "/etc/rc.d/named start"
  stop program = "/etc/rc.d/named stop"

It can also easily be configured to send notifications.
