[docs] [issue12954] Multiprocessing logging under Windows

New submission from paul j3 <ajipanca at gmail.com>:

The Windows programming guidelines for the multiprocessing module documentation should include a warning that any logging initialization should be protected by the 'if __name__' block.  Otherwise you will get duplicate logging entries for the child processes.  This is because the multiprocessing.forking.prepare() function explicitly calls log_to_stderr(), and may implicitly do so again when it imports the parent module, resulting in duplicate logging handlers.
