On Unix, the editor can't die without the client knowing about it and
the client can't die without the server knowing about it (unless the
whole client system crashes at an inoportune time -- that's the only
case where keepalive packets are needed).  On Windows, who knows?

If the editor "zombies", then it hasn't died and the client is going to
continue waiting for it to complete and the server will wait for the
client to do something.  There's no way to tell that condition from the
editor simply waiting for the user to do something.
