Hi Li, Michael; :-)

I agree with Michael here, if we can figure out a way to get rid of the 
cross-process lifecycle management (maybe client-side stubs that 'die' 
gracefully, or something similar?) then it would be a good thing. 
Perhaps the current changes are the right time to introduce such a 
change, since other behavioral things would be sure to change too.
