I think we should continue to try and support MacOS as much as
practical, and I said as much here:

It is unfortunate there is that perception, as the issues appears to
only build issues and while the fork() thing is weird, it seems from the
other discussions that it isn't any more or less broken than it always
has been, but the documentation has been updated.
