To be clear: I mean that FastChildWatcher is safe only if all process's code spaws subprocesses by FastChildWatcher.
If ProcessPoolExecutor or direct subprocess calls are used the watcher is unsafe.
If some C extension spawns new processes on its own (e.g. in a separate thread) -- the watcher is unsafe.

I just think that this particular watcher is too dangerous.
