In general, you can expect different LaunchMechanisms to be workable for
different Unix flavors at different times.  It would be good to have them
available via a flag for future maintainability.  E.g. if vfork ends up
being as troublesome as everyone says, we can fall back for fork, etc...
So I rather like having different LaunchMechanisms available on different
platforms - just the default would be different.  fork should work
