comment Identifying the existence of hwcomposer of Project Butter in Jelly Bean
He said it doesn't have it. But the answer I'm looking for is how to tell so I don't have to ask every time they release their ROMs.

comment Is there a way to force an app to remain running in the background no matter what?
It doesn't need to be that way, IMO. Let the system do its old ways by default and in case the user intends one particular app to run in the background just at that particular moment when the need arises, just provide that option. It doesn't need to have another permission category since it is users' discretion to "pin" an app. I don't want an app to be permanently unstoppable once it runs. I just want an option to do this when there's a need just like what I have described in my question.

Looks like that's it. I wonder if there's any exception to that rule, you know, system apps like phone, contacts, alarms, etc. I do hope google will provide an option in the future for users to "pin" any apps that the user has manually started. It doesn't have to be done on startup to prevent bricking the phone. Or perhaps they could at least let the system attempt to pin it for a while and if the system gets unresponsive, let the user close it.
