New submission from David M. Beazley <beazley at users.sourceforge.net>:

The documentation for the apply() and apply_async() methods of a Pool 
object might emphasize that these operations execute func(*args,**kwargs) 
in only one of the pool workers and that func() is not being executed in 
parallel on all workers.    On first reading, I actually thought it might 
be the latter (and had to do some experimentation to figure out what was 
actually happening).
