I believe you are wrong here: kill on Unix would *not* kill the
tree of processes. Killing the parent process just does that:
kill the parent process.
Killing process groups is an entirely different issue. It would
be nice if subprocess also supported process groups (through
the same-named POSIX concept on POSIX, and job objects on Win32),
but that again is a different story.
