This is a syntax I basically like. I'm not sure though whether it should
be ctx.stream_behaviors instead of ctx? As for Windows users this
interface shouldn't be more confusing than the current one I prefer it to
the hardcoded member variables stdin_behavior, stdout_behavior and

I think for now I'll update the context class to support the syntax above
but with existing stream behaviors. This should be a rather simple change
hopefully everyone agrees with. Your ideas as interesting as they are open
the box of Pandora and will start another huge discussion which I would
prefer to engage in after we have managed to finish version 1.0 of
Boost.Process (which is hopefully this year ;).
