That's probably the correct perspective. I'm just not used to the concept of "sub-processes". When one process forks and execs, it's an entirely new "thing" in my mind. (Maybe that's wrong anyway, since a lot of stuff gets inherited. Hmm.)

btw, I found a related command: "times". It's even in POSIX. It appears to be equivalent to the syscall `times(2)` and shows usage times of both the current process and the sum of its children (it's a two-line output). That helped me in my particular use case.
