Right. However Joh-Tob was talking about the number of child processes.

There is a limit in PicoLisp in how many child processes can be spawned with
(fork), caused by the size of an 'fd_set' structure for the select() system

(fork) creates two pipes to the parent for each child process. The limitation
can be overcome with http://software-lab.de/doc/refD.html#detach for child
processes who do not depend on interprocess communication.
