Repurpose the word to mean Task.start + forced async boundary.

This means introducing this method:

sealed abstract class Task[+A] {
  def fork: Task[Task[A]] =

But in doing so we need to rename or deprecate older methods and companion object functions:

  • executeWithFork renamed to executeAsync on both Task and Observable
  • Task.fork is now deprecated
  • Observable.fork is now deprecated

Also Task.fromFuture suffered an upgrade, the implementation now avoiding async boundaries when calling onComplete handlers.
