According to the documentation, the second parameter for os.waitpid(), called options, must be most of the time 0. So why not make it the default value?

The attached patch implements the proposed change, which is API compatible with current usages of the function.

Removing the `options` default argument from all the call to os.waitpid.

Note: This patch is based on [this patch]( submitted by StyXman.
