AFAIK, only with Cygwin. (But Windows isn't my preferred platform for
server deployment.) Anyway, on Windows you can of course just launch
subprocesses instead of forking. There's just a higher startup cost, even
if you just copy the contents of memory into the subprocess (as Cygwin does
to emulate forking) instead of starting a new program.
