I think it would affect people, but not code.
People might use the 'process X crashed...' message as part of their
development workflow, to see problems while hacking.
I doubt removing it would affect code. The only thing it's likely to
affect is logging code, and logging code won't care if there's less to
log. The least farfetched idea I can come up with for useful code that
would be affected is if someone clever has built a "supervisor-less"
supervision system based on parsing those messages.
