In the current patch, the parent and child share virtually everything (VM, FS, files, etc) - i.e. the child task is essentially a thread, not an independent POSIX process. I can hardly imagine why anyone would want to do anything else.
Also, the more sophisticated functionality is not being abandoned, it is just being put off in the name of initial simplicity. The announcement has the details.
