it only works on hp-ux right now, which uses pstat(2) for command string.

i looked at sendmail's code before deciding it was cleaner and easier to
start with openbsd setproctitle.c and add title methods as needed and as
they were understood.  and i don't know what issues there might be with
sendmail's license.
