os.fork() potentially has some problematic behavior when called from a subinterpreter.  In additional to the normal fork+threads madness, there's the question of what to do with existing subinterpreters.  The simplest solution is to simply disallow fork in a subinterpreter and then wipe out all subinterpreters in the child process post-fork (if os.fork() called in the main interpreter).
