Yes, but closing the handle is semantically a different operation than
reaping a process.  You can close a handle to a process while the process
is still running and it doesn't affect anything except that it frees up
space in your process's handle table.  You can also not close a handle, and
if the process exits nothing bad will come of it.  So closing the handle is
more tied to the lifetime of the instantiated HostProcess , and independent
of the actual process running on ths system.
