I'm skeptical.

I like C-u because it's really easy to remember, which is important if it's
not used regularly -- and AFAICS, forking fits that pattern: something that
isn't used all _that_ often, but which is very nice when you do need it, and
which cleanly fits into the C-u `slightly modified alternate behavior' mold.

"Though they may have different meanings, the cries of 'Yeeeee-haw!' and
 'Allahu akbar!' are, in spirit, not actually all that different."
