    yes, actually this and init itself (which uses the
    pid to switch between init and telinit behaviour)
    are the only two applications we found so far ...

    and as far as I know, those work with non pid=1
    values on other operating systems (inside containers)

    a fix there would definitely be appreciated and
    I think it would not hurt normal behaviour ...

    for the pid space, I'm not really sure if isolation
    is really cheaper than virtualization, but for the
    network space for example, a virtualization solution
    which is as lightweigth as the isolation is probably
    more challenging, although not impossible ...

    again, for the pid space, maintenance is quite low ..
