Marking everything as immortal/eternal after you've loaded your common code & data but before you do your forking is thenorm for this kind of serving system.

You already presumably have a defined lifetime for the processes so they'll likely be set to die within N hours or days.  Memory leaks of too many things persisting is a non-issue in this kind of system.

The alternative of trying to pick and choose exactly what (and anything they reference) sticks around is a maintenance nightmare exercise in futility.
