OK, I think I follow you. So if I wanted to create a remote FPing probe 
where you could specify rhosts per target it would have to derive from 
basefork rather than base? That in turn I suspose would make it do 
multiple remote logins if I used the same rhost multiple times under 
different targets, which would be ineffecient.

Am I right?
