[svlug] Reuse of pid's.

As I read the source for killall, it assumes that when a process is successfully
killed, no other processes with the same pid will be created within the lifetime
of that invocation of killall, which can last many seconds. Is that assumption
valid? Would it be safe for me to make the same assumption in my code?
