One quick workaround would be to use a tuple where required and then
coerce it back to Result when needed as such:

def sleep(secs):
    import os, time, parallel_helper
    start = time.time()
    return tuple(parallel_helper.Result(os.getpid(), time.time() -

rc = parallel.Client()
v = rc.load_balanced_view()
async_result = v.map_async(sleep, range(3, 0, -1), ordered=False)
for ar in async_result:
    print parallel_helper.Result(*ar)

You can of course skip the creation of Result in sleep and only turn
it into one in the display loop, but it all depends on additional
requirements (and adds some clarity to what is happening, I think).
