I thought the raison d'être was that procps, by using the /proc interface,
would not be intertwined with the kernel anymore... I didn't suggest to move
it into another package, btw: the procps package should just be in the Base
group to ensure it is in all installs.

I can't think of a problem created by that fact (which doesn't mean that
none exist).

Again, I just think procps is good enough for us as is, it is good enough
for Linux anyway.
