> When process is started asynchronously using DefaultExecutor then thread is created that
monitors process. This thread is user thread and blocks java program from exiting. There is
no way to make this thread daemon. Allowing this to be a daemon thread one would be able to
spawn process without &, monitor this process for some time to be sure that it is alive
and then exit without calling System.exit() that isnt always possible/desirable.
> Also it would be nice to be able to create thread with specific priority or thread group
or thread name or anything else.
