> The main question is whether a failed prepare callback should prevent the fork from happenning

Yes, I think an exception should prevent the fork from happening.

It's fail-safe for the PRNG case (you can guarantee that a fork won't occur without properly re-seeding a PRNG), and it makes bugs easier to catch in unit testing.
