There is an interesting article (somewhere) about zygote.
It is like an init process for android's app init processes.The point
is that the JVM is already initialiased,and most of the list of
libraries.so already loaded.
On request, it then does a fork, setuid, but NOT exec,so that there
are no elf symbols to resolve,just load the compiled java app scripts,
and go.
There may also be an init process[1],its only an analogy, please dont
take me too literally.
