For xpcshell:

If a browser hangs, the test frameworks currently just kill it off. Now that
browsers are going to launch subprocesses, we need to make sure:

* if the process exits normally, there aren't any subprocesses left around
* if the process is killed off, there aren't orphan processes which could cause
weird problems on future test runs
We need this in order to enable OOPP by default, since there are a couple of xpcshell tests which use the test plugin.

Upon further investigation, this isn't needed for OOPP by default.  These tests only query nsIPluginHost, they don't actually instantiate a plugin and are not multi-process.
