A slightly more ambitious solution than crashing / deadlocking always is to have Python automatically spawn a "fork server" whenever you start using threads.

Then, you would be able to have "subprocess" work cleanly, and not worry about any of this stuff.

I don't know if we want to take the perf hit on "import threading" though...
