I don't have any direct opinions on this, as it is just a bandaid.  fork, as defined by POSIX, doesn't allow what we do with it, so we're reliant on great deal of OS and library implementation details.  The only portable and robust solution would be to replace it with a unified fork-and-exec API that's implemented directly in C.
