	It was something I did need for DEC OSF/1 ATOM/Third-Degree
	memory access debugger, and my intention is to change things
	dramatically so that there will be no forked sub-process
	doing queue-report output anymore.

	I am considering of implementing it with Pthreads, but it
	means radical departure from "minimal technology" approach.
	(And a season of instabilities, very likely..)
