The problem w/ this is that people are going to use multiprocessing
and then someone is going to try running code which uses it on 
IronPython/Jython and it isn't going to work.  So maybe we could have 
a version of multiprocessing that transparently works in a completely 
different fashion under the hood but it seems like the module should
still exist and be usable.
