I don't think exiting would be a good idea at all.  I'm not sure about emitting 
a warning: the problem is that the people seeing the warning (plain users) 
can't do anything about it; worse, they probably will not even understand what 
it is about, and will get confused.

The package maintainer should see a deprecation warning when compiling code 
using PyOS_AfterFork() (thanks to the Py_DEPRECATED attribute).

Of course, I'll also update the docs to add a deprecation once the design is
