> I'd start by documenting the limitation and keeping a future feature request of "Allow subprocess to work from subinterpreters".  That is doable.  Supporting os.fork() is not.

subprocess is able to use os.posix_spawn() in Python 3.8. In that case, it's not limited by os.fork() check ;-) Windows isn't limited neither, CreateProcess() isn't limited in subinterpreters.
