    This subprocess object sends/receives data to/from any UNIX
    subprocess asynchronously (via vfork).
    Its delegate, if any, will receive the following messages:

	- subprocessDone;
	    // sent when the subprocess exits
	- subprocessOutput:(char *)buffer;
	    // sent whenever there is data on the standard output pipe;
	    // buffer is only valid until next call
	- showAlert:(const char *)errorString;
	    // sent when an error occurs;
	    // if it ever happens, it's usually only at startup time

#define BUFFERSIZE 2048
