We would also want to pass a "die_on_failure" into the method, since
in the 'git maintenance start' case we don't want to report a failure
when 'launchctl bootout' fails before we call 'launchctl bootstrap'.

This die() is only if the process cannot _start_, for example due to
launchctl not existing on $PATH. The result from finish_command()
would be non-zero when we bootout a plist that doesn't exist.

Ah. Sorry for misunderstanding. That explains why it works this way
on macOS but it did _not_ work that way on Windows.

Sorry, I missed this comment from v1 when reapplying the changes for v3.

Thank you for your continued attention and patience.
