The library allows a process to change its title (as displayed by system tools
such as ps and top).
Changing the title is mostly useful in multi-process systems, for example when
a master process is forked: changing the children's title allows to identify
the task each process is busy with. The technique is used by PostgreSQL and
the OpenSSH Server for example.
