Hi Victor,

That would be great. However, we played a bit with an alternative implementation of posix_spawn (one I got from one related bpo), and it didn't seem to make any difference in terms of memory allocation.

Then, we found out that posix_spawn uses fork by default (Linux implementation). So the large memory allocations still happen. One can set the vFork option, but that is apparently a very bad idea, as far as we read.

Is that correct?
