Well not, that's actually settled. The question is, what happes per
default on constructor call of the child-handle. And that's terminate,
i.e. kill, without any timeout.
The question is if we can have a SIGTERM equivalent on windows, and it
doesn't seem like it. There is a WM_QUIT message, but that's not send to
the process, but its HWNDs, rendering it useless, if you have a console app.
