I don't think forkOS is going to help you here. The IO library is still
using select(), all you're doing is making more OS threads.
We could do blocking read() for a bound thread. That would make some
sense, but we don't do it at the moment, and it does add an extra test
to the code.

That's an OS issue, I'm not sure.
