I think the statement about preventing zombies by setting SIG_CHLD ti SIG_IGN is bullshit. man sigaction on Linux states that

POSIX (B.3.3.1.3) disallows setting the action for SIGCHLD to SIG_IGN. Meshko 23:17, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Confirmed in Steven's Unix Network programming and changed "most" to "some". Meshko 23:28, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
