Create new worker processes like fork()

AnyEventFork allows you to create new processes, without actually forking them from your current process avoiding the problems of forking, but preserving most of the advantages of fork.

It can be used to create new worker processes or new independent subprocesses for short- and long-running jobs, process pools e.g. for use in pre-forked servers but also to spawn new external processes such as CGI scripts from a web server, which can be faster and more well behaved than using fork+exec in big processes.
