ok, no problem. There have been so many Boost.Process forks last year
though that it took me quite some time to merge them. Unless someone else
really plans to take over responsibility for Boost.Process and doesn't
change only minor things (thus creating another fork) I hope that this
proposed Boost.Process library remains the only one. There is no problem
if a differently designed Boost.Process library is proposed. But in the
past years all the Boost.Process libraries were forks and you didn't
really know which one to pick (which lead me to merge them all).
