[arch-general] Anything to manage user daemons?

Hello. I need to start several programs after login and
after startx. Now I write these directly in my .bash_profile
and .xinitrc; but I'm not satisfied with this. They cannot
be easily stopped after logout. To do that I think I'd
record their PID and kill them in .bash_logout, also need to
take care when they're manually stopped, and all these
related problems.

So I think a set of scripts like the daemon managing from
initscripts will be nice. But I can't write /etc/rc.d
daemons, as they must be executed by a normal user.

Has anyone written such a tool?

Thank you.
