This version has DTD. It also has documentation -- Eli, can you review it.
I did you found a good place where new "info os processes" should be documented,

I've also added a minimal test for the new functionality -- it basically makes

very system-dependent, I don't think we can do better.

I wonder if the alias should be dropped -- "info processes" can
be easily confused with "info inferiors".
