[Pythonmac-SIG] forking in python

I've got a script where I want to fork one child thread that goes off to 
execute a sequence of other scripts, using popen or whatever.  I don't care 
what it uses to launch them, but it needs to be something that serializes 
all the launches.

I can get it working, but it looks like the main thread blocks till after 
the child thread is finished running all the processes in its tasklist.

How can I make this so that the main thread doesn't block?  I'd like it to 
be able to do other stuff during this time.
