[New-bugs-announce] [issue6407] multiprocessing Pool should allow custom task queue

New submission from Matthew Leon Grinshpun <vertespain at gmail.com>:

Multiprocessing's Pool class __init__ method is written in a way that
makes it very difficult for a subclass to modify self._taskqueue. There
are very good reasons for wanting to do this - ie, making the taskqueue
block when it reaches a certain size. It seems to me that simply moving
the taskqueue assignment into _setup_queues() would do the trick.
