Making the switch from spawning conhost directly to using CreatePseudoConsole and otherwise hosting a pseudoconsole session affords us a number of benefits.

  • Fixes #1090
  • Isolates Windows Terminal's understanding of conhost's internals
  • Allows us to CreateProcess the shell directly and track its exit independent from that of the pseudoconsole host
    • which allows us to manage the shell and the pseudoconsole host in separate jobs
