Hello Benoit

Looks like there are two of us, who needs a better mechanism to manage
OS processes from Erlang. I need it for a CI server which I'm working
on, so my requirements are not as high as yours, but still os:cmd
doesn't work for me and ports are missing one feature which I need.

Maybe we could reanimate erlexec together?

Cheers,
Gleb
