Threads, vfork(), page aliasing, and copy on write all appear easy enough with mill mechanisms already described. fork() has the added complication of getting pointers defined by the parent to work with the child address range. My best guess is something along the lines of segments might be used. Done right the segments might be transparent to the application a majority of the time.
