You'd have to at least consider whether to consider using it ;)

BTW, something like adding a windows fork() that is not publically
exposed might be considered a bug/performance fix only (and thus
suitable for 3.0.1) if you don't get it into 3.0 (to be exposed to
Python code in 3.1) - but check first whether it would be accepted as
such. Definitely best to try to get it into 3.0.
