That would only test ECL in Sage, not ECL in all the platforms with the
particular tests we use (quicklisp, for instance, etc), am I wrong?

I am afraid I did not explain myself very well in the last emails: ECL does
not fix fork() it simply avoids using it in cygwin. This means we have to
use system(), which is only useful in some contexts and may even cause some
problems with argument parsing.
