RE: Re: #739: Ensuring ACID in Subversion (aka watcher procecesses are fun)

Well, Windows can just wait for the process to exit using some kind of
WaitForMultipleObject() scheme. We'd probably need some other scheme for
Unix boxes given how useless process APIs are on Unix. i.e. There isn't
a openpid() API that lets you then call waitpid().

Suggestions for an alternate scheme would be appreciated.
