The section of the docs '1.1 The problem' shouldn't be focussed on how
C++ doesn't have system calls built in, as this is a problem that the
whole of boost is addressing, not just this library. It should be more
like the introduction to lexical cast, where a short history of what was
available in C,C++ is given. The short history and the shortcomings of
whats gone before would be platform specific. The last bit starting 'One
of these is process management' is relevant but the previous 3
paragraphs aren't.

Similarly in '1.2 Motivation'. It is stated that 'It is clear that there
is a need for a library to manage processes'. If i had no previous
knowledge of managing processes it wouldn't be clear from the
documentation so far that there is this need. What seems more clear from
this section is the authors desire to get their library included in a
future C++ standard.
