Detailed Description

Implements the ChildProcess c-class for creating and tracking child processes.

forks off child processes, checking their return code, logging their standard error and timing them to make sure they don't take too long. If they take too long, they are killed. These child processes are also spawned as independent process groups so that if they fork children that we can easily kill their child processes as well.
