Well, because I didn't want to call an external program, I just wanted
to fork the currently running process. If I don't figure this out I
will probably refactor to call another python program externally and use
a pipe, but it won't be as convenient as doing this, which seems like it
ought to work.
PS Out of town for several days, or else I would have written back sooner.
