There's something completely analaogous in Boost.Interprocess, alas also in
the details section: See get_current_process_id at

Certainly. Maybe we could move this functionality into boost/detail for
B.IP and
B.F to use: boost/detail is not as good as public functionality, but you
can count
on stuff there to be reasonably stable.

BTW, the proper lib for this to belong in is Boost.Process, a GSoC proyect
from 2006 that unfortunately didn't come to fruition.
