      Description

      After starting a new process on Unix,
      a "reaper thread" is started to wait for process termination via waitpid.
      It would save one Thread creation per subprocess invocation if we simply had
      a SIGCHLD handler that would set the hasExited field in the appropriate Process
      object.
