Just to be clear on this, you're right in what you say, but if a task in a child
pidns still has access to the /proc mount of the parent pidns, then it can see
the pids in there, and get information from them, i.e. /proc/pid/maps.  So
in that sense, some people could misinterpret "see/use pids" and think you
weren't right.
