In boost.process, is there a portable way to:
- Kill another process based on the pid ?
- Get the parent process id ?
- Get the list of subprocesses ? Maybe the whole subprocesses tree ?
- Be notified when a subprocess crashes ?
- Get the current process user id or user name ?

It should not be very difficult to implement because several of these
features are already available in some portable Python modules (psutil
for example).
