Re: s6-svwait not reaping zombies?

Thanks: submitted here:

I want to confirm my understanding of the problem. In both cases where
there are unreaped zombies, the zombies properly have PPID 1, but PID 1
is the execline "foreground" command, which doesn't look for and/or reap
zombies. Would adding zombie reaping to "foreground" (probably by
periodically calling wait_reap()) solve this problem?

(I understand that this would be an ugly feature to add to "foreground";
I just want to make sure I understand the problem.)
