The processing module has two ways of creating a new process which executes
the same program of the current process:
- the moral equivalent of popen(sys.executable sys.argv) + some magic
values passed on the command line which is a pickled state.
The second method doesn't work out-of-the-box when the program is packaged,
and it is the only one available in Windows.
