It's easier if we make the following restrictions:
You can only set the process title to something the length of the
original command-line or shorter (should work fine for simply deleting
the "python" at the beginning).
After calling sys.setproctitle(), C code which has ahold of argv will no
longer have the original argv data. We should be able to have a copy of
the original argv for regular python code.
Are these reasonable restrictions to place on the setting of the process
One person's data is another person's program.
