| That should be wait5, for consistency with the various other forms of
wait3() was the 3 arg form of wait. wait4() is the 4 arg form of wait
(there never was a wait2() - no 2 arg form ever existed that I know of).
Aside: wait4() should have been waitfor() but whoever at Berkeley I suggested
that call to didn't get the verbal pun ... or just decided to ignore it!
I see just 4 args in Matt's proposed waitx() so wait5() wouldn't
be consistent at all.
