I've been toying with the implementation of fork(), and Jeff brought up that
it may be better to implement something slightly different, such as:

    send(object, 'method, [args])

Which would be virtually the same as object.method(args), except for that
it "forks" off.

Anybody have comments on this, compared to a direct fork() implementation?
