very cool -- but *nix only, of course :-(

But it seems that there is a demand for this sort of thing, and a few major projects are rolling their own. So maybe it makes sense to put something into the standard library that everyone could contribute to and use.

With regard to forking -- is there another way? I don't have the expertise to have any idea if this is possible, but:

start up python

capture the entire runtime image as a single binary blob.

could that blob be simply loaded into memory and run?

(hmm -- probably not -- memory addresses would be hard-coded then, yes?) or is memory virtualized enough these days?
