I'm not convinced that a multi-threaded fork()+exec() from C would be any better, unless the Python code goes to great lengths to avoid any non-async-signal-safe operations between the fork() and the exec().
So along with the proposed change to switch to the subprocess() module I would like to propose that that module switch to using posix_spawn() instead of fork()+exec().
