  Description     : Perl module to manage running things in parallel processes

There are several other modules to do this, you probably want one of
them. This module exists as a super specialised parallel task manager.
You create the object with a proces limit and callbacks for what to do
while waiting for a free process slot, as well as a callback for what a
process shoudl do just before exiting.

You must explicetly call $runner->finish() when you are done. If the
runner is destroyed before it's children are finished a warning will be
generated and your child processes will be killed, by force if

If you specify a maximum of 1 then no forking will occur, and run() will
block until the coderef returns. You can force a fork by providing a
boolean true value as the second argument to run(), this will force the
runner to fork before running the coderef, however run() will still
block until it the child exits.
