Before considering changes, we should look into what the actual behavior is
now and was in the past. I could have sworn that other threads were
automatically reaped before. Perhaps I was wrong, or perhaps this got
changed at some point. Or perhaps they really are now and it's happening
by a means that is escaping us when we read the source today.
