/**
* The run-command API offers a versatile tool to run sub-processes with
* redirected input and output as well as with a modified environment
* and an alternate current directory.
*
* A similar API offers the capability to run a function asynchronously,
* which is primarily used to capture the output that the function
* produces in the caller in order to process it.
*/
/**
* This describes the arguments, redirections, and environment of a
* command to run in a sub-process.
*
* The caller:
*
* 1. allocates and clears (using child_process_init() or
* CHILD_PROCESS_INIT) a struct child_process variable;
* 2. initializes the members;
* 3. calls start_command();
* 4. processes the data;
* 5. closes file descriptors (if necessary; see below);
* 6. calls finish_command().
*
* Special forms of redirection are available by setting these members
* to 1:
*
* .no_stdin, .no_stdout, .no_stderr: The respective channel is
* redirected to /dev/null.
*
* .stdout_to_stderr: stdout of the child is redirected to its
* stderr. This happens after stderr is itself redirected.
* So stdout will follow stderr to wherever it is
* redirected.
