Jesse, it's great to learn it's on your wish list too!

Should I design the patch so that (a) there is some global in the module that needs tweaking to choose the child creation technique, or (b) that an argument to the Process() constructor forces a full interpreter exec to make all platforms match, or (c) that a process object once created has an attribute (like ".daemon") that you set before starting it off?  Or (d) should there be a subclass of Process that, if specifically used, has the fork/exec behavior instead of just doing the fork?

My vote would probably be for (b), but you have a much better feel for the library and its style than I do.
