It could, but it's quite difficult to get right.  (The user-level
thread system conflicts with it.)  For a "true fork," check out scsh.
If you want to know details about why it's hard, check out:

  author = 	 {Martin Gasbichler and Michael Sperber},
  title = 	 {Processes vs. User-Level Threads in {Scsh}},
  crossref =	 {Scheme2002}
