The book has a sample implementation of fork for NT.  Buy the book if you
are interested.

I doubt that either Corinna or I want to transcribe the book for this
mailing list.  And, I'm pretty sure that neither of us has that much
experience with the routines in the book.  I did play with the
implementation and realized that it would take quite a bit of work to
perfect for cygwin.  For one thing, it doesn't seem to concern itself
with dlls.

I don't remember if there were other issues.
