This was what I was requesting too but I got no answer from Boris.
At least on POSIX we need a framework which deals with sending signals
and async. handling of delivered signals (not only SIGCHLD).

Because we have no conclusion how this should be handled by
boost.process in this review - I suggest that this facility should be
implemented by another library.
boost.process could provide code for waiting synchronously on a child
process (waitpid) - for this purpose the sync. wait could be done in a
separate thread and the result will be transfered via a future == async.
waiting on child process.
