We were also planning on a channel for "process status", right?  For example,
the user would need to know (1) if the process started or not, (2) if it is
still running correctly, (3) how long it has been running, (4) if it
encountered an error, and (5) if it finished without an error.  Could you tell
me if your idea for a virtual terminal is the same or not?
