pausing or killing a process

Is there a reasonable way of pausing a process
within Python? This could be a process created by
a Python os.fork() call or some other Unix process.
Since I have no solution at this time, I'll take
almost anything I can get. This is run in an
environment where threads and forked processes
exist BTW (if that matters).
Additionally, a process can be killed by doing a
os.system("kill -9 %i" % pid) but that falls short
of elegant. Can it be done better?
