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.
