Could do. On the other hand, it is a directory for a small number (usually
zero) of tmp files.

More pertitently, is *anyone* even going to use fork/exec? Whilst there is
no reason (yet) why someone couldn't, other than for development, why would
anyone want to? I've only really been seeing it as a stepping stone to
pushing the Win32 port out...
