The GNU/Linux implementation is now done and installed.  I didn't yet
write the documentation for the ELisp manual, but I assume this is not
urgent, since the code freeze does not affect the docs.

P.S. The GNU/Linux implementation uses /proc filesystem to get at the
list of processes and the attributes of a process.  While I know that
other Unix systems support /proc, I don't have access to them, and
thus cannot verify that the code works on them, especially since I'm
quite sure the details vary.  So for now the /proc method is only
enabled for GNU/Linux; users of other Unices will have to extend the
code for their systems.
