Hi folks,

I've extracted the child process monitoring code from Unicorn, which
is rock solid, into its own gem:

You just pass it an enumerable of callables, and it will launch each
in its own child process, restart them quickly if they die, reap them
all on signals, etc.

It will even set $0 in the child processes to meaningful names.

You'll love it.

It's the basis of a new worker process implementation.
