I am interested in doing just this. I'm loathe to spending time on it,
however, if it turns out that Guido still doesn't think multiprocessing
is a problem, or has a particular solution in mind. So once that clears
up, I'm happy to commit to a PEP, a reference implementation (if it can
be done purely in Python; if it involves diving into CPython, I'll
require assistance), and ongoing maintenance of the same for the
foreseeable future.
