[New-bugs-announce] [issue27221] [multiprocessing] Doc is outdated regarding method picklability

Memeplex report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Memeplex:

The module documentation recommends...

More picklability

Ensure that all arguments to Process.__init__() are picklable. This means, in particular, that bound or unbound methods cannot be used directly as the target (unless you use the fork start method) — just define a function and use that instead.

...but methods (bound and unbound) are now pickleable (given their self.object is picklable).
