I agree.  New testcases are reviewed with this rule in mind.  But the existing
testcases are handled by this killer app.

It does not work for existing testcases as they fork, setsid etc. various ways
and 'timeout' will not catch them all.  This is why gdb-orphanripper.c tracks
them by pty and not by PID/PGRP/etc.  (There are no privileged features
available in buildroots.)
