Nope.  I tend to design by evolution.  This message discusses my first go
at this design.  In later messages on this thread, I explained how it was
actually possible to have the temporary process become the real child

The short story is that when the child process begins to die, the parent
spawns a new child.  That child starts to create threads, but only creates
as many as it can.  When it can't create any more, it waits until it can
finish creating the rest of it's threads.

The code is actually relatively simple, I just haven't had the time to
write the code up yet.
