Isn't it also fair to say that a Strictly Conforming POSIX.1 Application
shouldn't fail to function due to being started by something that isn't
one (crond)? While the behaviour is undefined under POSIX, should it still
be inherited by a POSIX child? A POSIX personality process should, surely,
be able to assume it can always wait() on a child, regardless of how
POSIX-conformant it's parent was?
