[I explained this in #abcl as well, but putting on the mailing list for posterity]

We have multiple entry points for ABCL other than the wrapper script, such as "java -jar abcl.jar", using ABCL embedded in another application, using ABCL in Google App Engine, all of which for the missing system property "pid" would be confusing. The "correct" implementation strategy is to implement the GETPID behavior that I wrote for swank-abcl.lisp as a Java primitive for ABCL.  Which I take as a TODO item when I find the time.
