Yes, we are looking into adding a detach attribute or similar for
asynchronous operation, but it is not done yet.

If you see a different behavior, this may be due to the program you
execute.  If you take Tomcat's startup for example, the script will
start the server in the background and then terminate - the "real"
process seems to be running asynchronously.
