Translating daemon

daemon does not translate to démon in French. Indeed, daemon can (rarely) mean demon in English, but, in the context of computing, the term originates from its "helper spirit" or "guardian" meaning, which is not shared with the term demon. Following various other translations (including the French translation of His Dark Materials), I recommend using daemon or dæmon in the French text.
