    Add g_spawn_check_exit_status() · f7abd3ce

    Many (if not "almost all") programs that spawn other programs via
    g_spawn_sync() or the like simply want to check whether or not the
    child exited successfully, but doing so requires use of
    platform-specific functionality and there's actually a fair amount of
    boilerplate involved.
    This new API will help drain a *lot* of mostly duplicated code in
    GNOME, from gnome-session to gdm.  And we can see that some bits even
    inside GLib were doing it wrong; for example checking the exit status
    on Unix, but ignoring it on Windows.
