I just realized test_multiprocessing is being skipped on Windows because a few relative imports of _multiprocessing are failing in win32 specific code blocks. Attached is a trivial patch to remove the relative import, enabling the tests to run and succeed on both dev and installed environments.

Jesse: There don't appear to be any side effects here, but I get the feeling I might be overlooking some reason this might have been done.

The relative imports have been more of a pain then they've helped. I'm fine with nuking them so long as the test suite passes.

Fixed in r83722 (py3k) and r837274 (release31-maint).
