Hmmph. I do not really understand what the point of posix_spawn-then-exit
is. posix_spawn() replaces fork-then-exec. If you want to exit anyway, why
don't you just exec()? And if you really need to posix_spawn() due to the
would-be crappy Apple run-time, then you are totally screwed (as in broken
behavior or no 10.4 support).
