I've read the current (clearly incomplete w.i.p.) doc and parsed the
headers and I like the design so far.
However, I can't find a way to be notified if a child process did end, by
getting to the end of the program or by having crashed or by having being
shut down by external processes, the OS or the user.
Did I miss something? If not, what is supposed to happen in the parent
process if a child do get to an end (whatever the cause)?
