multiprocessing + console + windows = challenge?

Hi all.

So, the doc is pitiless:

   "Note Functionality within this package requires that the __main__
method be importable by the children. This is covered in Programming
guidelines however it is worth pointing out here. This means that some
examples, such as the multiprocessing.Pool examples will not work in
the interactive interpreter. For example:"

My question:

Q: did any one manage to resurrect multiprocessing module in
interactive Python console? Especially interesting would be on
Windows :)

pprocess library works in console when on Linux, but it doesn't on
Windows :-/
