I've been using
while [[1]]; do restart software; sleep 60; done
for programs with memory leaks or other stability problems (not for tor,
since it works fine for me).
Of course, that means connections will die every few hours, but
persistent connections will only hit your node every now and then.

If you are not babysitting the node anyway, a downtime of a couple
minutes every now and then won't hurt you.

P.S. I'm not very sure about the bash syntax, so check it if you find it
