[SR-Users] RFC: removing (disabling) fork=no

wondering if anyone is using fork=no -- some old docs suggest it is
suitable for debugging, but actually kamailio doesn't work properly in
this mode, leading to more troubles than benefits (e.g., having reports
of invalid issues, like tcp not working in this mode).

In first phase I would disable setting this value, with a warning if set
to no, because most of the configs out there have fork=yes. Removing it
could be considered in the future.

Note that this fork=no is different than don't daemonize controlled with
-D, which will stay being useful for some init.d systems.

Comments or other suggestions?
