Skip Montanaro and others hackers started to port the multiprocessing module 
to Python 2.4 and 2.5.

Is it planned to include it in 2.4.6 and/or 2.5.3? I don't know the status of 
the project, but it looks like it's still in alpha or beta phase (so far to 
be stable and robust). Or can we at least include the needed patches? 
Especially th threading + fork issue:
