It does not have to be subprocess. Thomas Rast did some work on
support multithread access to object db by basically replicating all
datastructure per thread. If that work is complete, we have something
like "odb container" that could be used to access objects from another
repository and it won't contaminate the original odb. The same thing
can be done for ref and index access.
