I want it too. For a multicore single host, --fork is more convenient 
than MPI. There are two things left to fix I know of:

1. The original problem that you can't resume a forked session.

2. Ideally, the rec files from a forked or an MPI session should be 
compatible, so you can start with MPI and resume with fork, or the other 
way round.

This is not really hard, just tricky. I have started trying to fix this 
a couple of times, but so far I have given up. Maybe someone else could 
give it a try? Now at least my unified fork/node/MPI tree is brought up 
to par with bleeding-jumbo again, that's a good start.
