The wait cursor doesn't stop when the app exits, it stops when the app
opens a window typically.

As best I can tell what Windows has for OS support is that it detects
when the app goes idle (I guess the UNIX equivalent would be "lands in
poll() or otherwise blocks for N length of time" or something). We'd
need to be able to do that for a process/thread and all its children
