I have a patch, ~2-3k gzipped, that enables users to "hide" processes in
the way you mention. I've been running it successfully for a long time.
It adds very little overhead and bloat. Anyone interested in having this
new functionality should drop me a mail.

Once I've browsed over the patch again I might post it here since it is
so small.
