Hardly. If your project consists of more than one different processes, you'll obviously need 1 main() for each program. Also, the kernel has more than one main(). At least each module has it's own main(). [FIXME: not really sure if this really correct]

modules have no main function, they merely register a set of capabilities with the kernel. the funtions that it registers are then called asynchronously when the events the are registered for occur. (sorry u asked )

One main per executable. If you have more executables in your project, you'll have more main() functions.
