Currently, when running
watchmedo auto-restart ..., if the sub-process terminates, it is left as a zombie process and watchmedo continues running and waiting for filesystem events.
With this PR, the sub-process will be monitored for termination, and restarted if it terminates.
Alternatively, we could make this exit upon sub-process termination, possibly with a flag to choose between the two behaviours.
This is related to issue #405.
