Threads aren't processes, they share VM. To exec ls(1) sharing VM with a
bunch of threads?! What if the process launched is itself multithreaded,
what relationship will there be among the child's threads and the parent's?

IMVHO, your suggestion makes sense for fork(2) from a thread, while exec(2)
there doesn't make much sense at all.
