Apart from expecting something different from fork than it does? No.

fork="true" will spawn a new Java Virtual Machine, but it will wait
for the spawned process to stop anyway - it doesn't run it in
parallel.  Running processes in parallel is something that will
probably be available in Ant2, maybe even before that, but is not
possible right now.
