Add bundle requirement to check a process

Sometimes we need to check a process if it's running, before lnstall/launch a bundle. With this check/requirement we can start/stop a process but the check is needed.

Is there hope for this proposal? It would be a great feature.

In the existence of the filter "Process Exists", we could query before the distribution of bundles started, whether a particular process is running. Today, we need to ensure this, trigger a restart of the computer, so that the distribution is not crashed or fails. To increase the user satisfaction would the existence of this filter be extremely useful. At certain productive units in our company is every reboot, which must not be made, a profit.

This would definitely be so useful for both Bundle and Action System Requirements for many bundles I have assisted folks in creating.

Also, you can have a requirement on a service, but not on if it's running. Shame because if wlansvc is running I can be sure the device has a wifi device.
