Object Oriented simple interface to fork()

Description

Fork is too low level, and difficult to manage. Often people forget to exit at the end, reap their children, and check exit status. The problem is the low level functions provided to do these things. Throw in pipes for IPC and you just have a pile of things nobody wants to think about.

Child is an Object Oriented interface to fork. It provides a clean way to start a child process, and manage it afterwords. It provides methods for running, waiting, killing, checking, and even communicating with a child process.
