PEP-0371 – Adding the processing module to the Python standard library

Jesse Noller is championing the addition of the processing module to the standard library. We’re making extensive use of processing at work now, so I can say it is an extremely simple API for spawning and managing tasks in the background. Passing data between processes using the processing library is as easy as with standard threads.

As I have written before, I’m excited about this library and I’m looking forward to having it available everywhere without any extra effort on our part.
