Don't forget that you will have to use a real fork() rather than
vfork(). Some of the apparent savings will not materialize.
I agree, though, that using exec() to reinvoke the same binary is
pretty silly, especially when you don't want exec's normal side-effects
of detaching shared mem etc. And being able to rip out the dependency
on whether vfork() exists would be nice.
