Inflicting the incapacities of non-free on the free software world :-(

So I think the cast to int is not correct, at least on some

Without the g_spawn funcs the int is all is for now, I believe. Ints of course will, with a little luck, inter-operate with native forking, and
at least a couple of the job-starting modules on cpan.

Also, can you write a unit test for this?

Below, with a couple of lines to hopefully skip if fork() isn't a real
fork, but I've got no way to try that.

Any win32 users willing to try out this patchset?
