[Numpy-discussion] Simple way to launch python processes?

I would like to launch python modules or functions (I don't know which is easier to do, modules or functions) in separate Terminal windows so I can see the output from each as they execute.  I need to be able to pass each module or function a set of parameters.  I would like to do this from a python script already running in a Terminal window.  In other words, I'd start up a "master" script and it would launch, say, three processes using another module or a function with different parameter values for each launch and each would run independently in its own Terminal window so stdout from each process would go to it's own respective window.  When the process terminated the window would remain open.

I've begun to look at subprocess modules, etc., but that's pretty confusing. I can do what I say above manually, but it's gotten clumsy as I want to run eventually in 12 cores.

I have a Mac Pro running Mac OS X 10.6.

If there is a better forum to ask this question, please let me know. 

Thanks for any advice.
