[Zope] Is this possible to daemonize a process launched from Zope ?

I'd want to know : 

has someone ever tried to launch a process from Zope and daemonize 
it so that it runs by itself and doesn't hang one zope thread ?

I'm thinking about the fork+exec with controlling terminal and
process group detachment, available under *nix systems.

Is such a thing possible ?

Are there any drawbacks ? (beside not being portable to Win)

I know I could try and see by myself, but if someone has already 
done it or says its impossible, then I'd better know now. 

Thanks in advance
