We are working on a project to implement Solaris-sytle
process control in Linux /proc. Previous disscussions
have suggested such process control is desirable, but
we could not find any actual implementation.

The primary features we are implementing are the

* Transparent control: Attaching to a process will not
change behavior of the process until directed. Unlike
ptrace, we will not munge the parent pointer in a

* Selective tracing of signals and syscalls.

* Multiple attaching processes. Multiple cooperating
tracing programs can attach to a single process.

These features have been long felt need of
the paradyn project (www.cs.wisc.edu/paradyn). We want
the feedback of the community on this work.
