It may make sense to expose something like getProcessID() to the public
because it is independently useful on systems with /proc.
In the src/solaris version, Arrays::toString(Object) does not quote
the arguments, so the argument boundary is lost in the logging. I think
something that performs quoting (using the Java language rules, not
shell) would be helpful in this context. Although on non-Windows
platforms, this information can easily be obtained with tools such as
strace or truss.
