What is the purpose of the
process_executor
binary? All the commands seem to be run through `StreamedHermeticCommand`s via Nodes.

It’s there to make it easy to manually test the code without needing to cycle through pants
It’s not actually used by pants 🙂
But being able to say
process_executor -- /bin/hostname
and trace through the code is really useful 🙂
