There has been some discussion of moving to some other SCM lately, so
any branching might want to wait for that, but certainly you could try

Most backends should be using sanei_thread, so it is possible to build
them with pthread support instead of fork, so something like
http://sourceware.org/pthreads-win32/ could be useful?
