Well, there is the small matter that fork() doesn't exist on Windows. 
And no equivalent functionality either. Cygwin might emulate this but I 
have severe doubts as to whether this would work reliably in non-trivial 
cases (i.e., threads using sockets etc) and I can almost guarantee that 
it's going to be very, very slow if it worked at all.
