List,

I've been searching around for a multiprocessing module backport from
3 to 2.7.x and the closest thing I've found was celery's billiard [0]
which seems to be a work in progress.

The feature I'm specially interested in is the ability to spawn
processes [1] instead of forking, which is not present in the 2.7
version of the module.

Anyone knows about a working backport of the multiprocessing 3k module?
