Hello all,

I've been trying to understand multiprocessing for a while, I tried multiple times. The PR is a suggested enhancement to the example that made it "click" for me. Or should I say, produced a working result that made sense to me.

Details for each change in the PR. It's short too.

The concept of multiprocessing is easy enough, but the syntax is so unlike regular python and so much happens "behind the curtain" so to speak, it took me a while. When I looked for multiprocessing advice online, many answers seemed unsure if or how their solution worked.

Generally I'd like to help write documentation. So this is a test to see how good your issue handling process is too. :)

I rejected the accompanying PR and the changes it proposed, therefore it seems reasonable to close this issue as well.
