Well, yes, exactly.  That's what this forum topic I mentioned is all about:


Functors, I think they're called.  Essentially, the idea of wrapping
the concept of a "runnable process"--or in this case a sporkable
one--into a class of some sort with a .run() method that is always
overridden is in order to provide a way to pass any process to another
class that can run (or spork) them as children.  You can get a lot of
functional mileage out of that, but it's confusing and awkward as I'm
finding out.
