I am strong believer in free software.

I do not believe in Santa, ghosts, fairies, goblins, and gods.

On my system (Mint Qiana) lsof /mountpoint and fuser /mountpoint both find a process even if chrooted.

You cannot use tee. tee makes a copy of the stream. That is not the wanted behaviour.

Made it clear the the output to the terminal is not a copy of the output to stderr (thus tee is not an option).

Maybe a practical approach would be: While less than X GB RAM free: Kill the youngest child and put it back on the queue. Only spawn new jobs when 3*X GB free. It will waste CPU time on the jobs that needs to be rerun. Another approach would be to suspend (not kill) the young jobs. That would make them swap out, and they would need to swap in eventually - which may be even slower. The killing should not be too hard to implement.

When you come up with a clever algorithm that "does the right thing" please let me know.
