You call clone with the CLONE_NEW* flags to create a new namespace.  And
then you just fork() normally (without those flags) to create additional
processes in that same namespace.

It's a bit like chroot: you do something extra to get in it, and then
children inherit that environment by default.


P.S. Fix your hilarious legalese .sig.
