I think the representation of the pid needs consideration - we need to 
be happy that using a long is the right thing to do and won't cause us 
problems in the future and won't conflict with other APIs that we might 
add in this area.

In terms of spec then it might be helpful to say a bit more to define a 
"native process id", even in an abstract way.
