  Description     : spawning processes mimicking the threading module

 It's a package for the Python language which supports the spawning of
 processes  using  the API  of  the  standard library's  ``threading``
 module. Its features are:
   * Objects  can  be transferred  between  processes  using pipes  or
     multi-producer/multi-consumer queues.
   * Objects can be shared between processes using a server process or
     (for simple data) shared memory.
   * Equivalents   of   all    the   synchronization   primitives   in
     ``threading`` are available.
   * A Pool  class makes it easy to  submit tasks to a  pool of worker
