Storing the PID of a process you need to monitor is the established method, and 
is certainly the most reliable. Why can't you use the PID as the pattern to 
look for? If there's a reason then please explain it as that will help us 
assist you. If there's no reason then I don't understand why you're trying to 
over-complicate it.

If you're just wanting to monitor it from the process that forked it then you 
don't need to store the PID anywhere other than a variable, and you don't need 
to wait for it.

If you absolutely must do this then the only way is via an extension such as 
proctitle: http://php.net/setproctitle
