Yes, probably, but nix above says that his system can manage 10k fork()s per second, and I doubt there are that many user events. Also, I think a "softer" version of fork() should be used which does not create a new address space. If at all possible, it would be like the reverse of a micro-kernel: a macro-kernel which invokes stuff normally reserved to user space.
