In what way is 'createProcess' more low-level than the previous interfaces?
In any case, it still makes sense to me to keep the previous interfaces
around indefinitely - even if they have to be redefined in terms of
'createProcess'. But 'createProcess' seems quite a bit more high-level than
the others. It seems to combine a lot of different POSIX functions like
'exec' and 'system' and 'pipe' which could all be exposed individually
through a simpler API.
