[rspec-users] Spec Server on Windows - missing fork

Really tired of 30 second startup times to run Test::Unit tests, I would
give my left pinky for a solution to running spec_server on windows. Is
there some monkey patch that can avoid daemonizing the process
altogether (Im fine if it runs as any kind of process at all). TIA.
Error below - I have open3 and win32-process already but no dice.
