Hm, do we really want to go to this much trouble to support a weird and
semi-broken feature when using the obsolete version of ps on Solaris?  I
suppose you felt it was important enough to develop a patch....

Anyway, my main worry about this is that while all this may work on
Solaris, does it work on platforms other than Solaris?  In particular,
does this still work on Linux?
