yeah this is just toy code at this point.  still a valid point - what  
would have us do to be rock solid

has_fork = fork{ exit! } rescue nil

so far it's rock solid - what this means is that i'll be able to  
provide a cross platform open4 impl whereby client code can have  
handles on pid, stdin, stdout, stderr for the child process in a  
*thread safe* fashion - very cool.  the sockets idea is from steve  
shreeve btw...

cheers.
