I can't give you everything you want, but I can give you half...

For Unix, I'm just going to make a fork() implementation after all.
There's no reason to exec a separate process (and deal with the bother
of locating the binary) if APR_HAVE_FORK. We'll just run the right
code path directly, in a new child process; the parent process will
continue on and most likely finish well before the child.

I'm assuming that the Windows solution will be very different, and
I'll let Brane describe it. I'm also assuming that Brane is okay with
the Windows and Unix implementations being different, because of


(which certainly persuaded me).

Hoping to do the Unix side of this today, by the way.
