ruby with copy-on-write safe garbage collection, this could save you a lot of
memory when you are managing many workers.

* Faster startup - if you are starting many workers at once, you would normally
have them competing for CPU as they load their environments. Resque-pool can
load the environment once and almost instantaneously fork all of the workers.
