I understand your arguments. Yet, It would be great to have
instrument, that tells supervisor, that child
is eating too much memory. Look, if we are speaking about reliable
platform, than it is better to have some
predictable behaviour.

Perhaps some startup options, like memory threshold for OOM killer?
Supervisor will never grow up to 20 GB,
but our rabbitmq production instance error_logger used to grow up to 20GB+
