We already do: just invoke runemacs.exe rather than emacs.exe.

As for forking a thread: it is a bit more complex than that.  (We
already start at least 2 threads at startup.)  The 2 most important
problems are (1) the same executable should be able to run in a text
terminal session under -nw, and (2) we don't want the GUI session to
have a console.  runemacs.exe solves both.

Any reasons not to close this bug?
