Hey all,

Just a heads up: thanks to the tireless work of Olivier Grisel, the
OpenBLAS development branch is now fork-safe when built with its default
threading support. (It is still not thread-safe when built using OMP for
threading and gcc, but this is not the default.)

Gory details: https://github.com/xianyi/OpenBLAS/issues/294

Check it out - if it works you might want to consider lobbying your
favorite distro to backport it.
