We've spoken before about how the main part of multiprocessing (that
is using multiple processes to emulate threading) doesn't make sense
with Jython (since there is no GIL to work around, and Jython
processes are *much* more expensive vs. CPython) -- but some of these
added APIs probably do make sense on Jython. Do you think they need a
different package name in these cases - or should Jython just
partially implement multiprocessing... or maybe you have another
