If we are not going to do what all others do, I would suggest the very
most simple solution:


     pthread_atfork_deregister(void (*prepare)(void), void (*parent)(void),
         void (*child)(void));

and make it remove the handlers from the internal list if != NULL.

Then the DSO can just handle it all "manually" in a destructor function.
