We discussed this behaviour, but we couldn't come up with a reason on why one
would need to fork in a prepare watcher that couldn't be better served by
starting an ev_idle watcher.
Therefore, we decided to forbid invocations of ev_loop_fork from prepare
If you have a convincing use case that couldn't be served by starting an
ev_idle watcher and forking from there, we'd be interested in hearing
about it :)
