at least at unix a fork is more compatible than a thread.
But I think in the moment the fork is used very stupid.
We will be most compatible to all systems if we do not use anything like that.
When I find the time I will play around a bit with a reader routine
without a fork and a second or a larger buffer. But that will not
come for sane-1.0.2 ;-)
