Ingo, can you create a test-case to verify that a new-style thread can
sanely do

if (!vfork())
execve();
thread_exit();

which leaves the other threads alive and well and is reasonably
efficient..

I don't personally much like the POSIX execve() behaviour, and I'd like to
make sure that it can be avoided for cases where that makes sense (ie a
threaded app that wants to start some other helper program should be able
to do so).
