Rikki, I want to add that I don't argue that it shouldn't be the
default. I was arguing in the context of games and other
demanding low latency, high memory, computation applications.
Your fork-collector could be excellent for most GUI applications
that are mostly based on D code. For instance, a GUI application
can detect that the user is inactive and trigger a fork.
It could also work for turn-based games.
