load. Most systems require constant monitoring when baby reaches its final stages of

Older implementations of baby did not require both initiating processes to be present at
the time of completion. In those versions the initiating process which was not present
was awakened and notified of the results upon completion. It has since been determined
that the presence of both parent processes result in a generally lower system load at
completion, and thus current versions of baby expect both parent processes to be active
during the final stages.
