Hi Richard: Thanks for the update. Yes, the multiprocessing.communication.Client
works much better. The residual issue left here is wether Python is vulnerable
to a DOS attack. If someone used regular sockets deliberately, they could crash
multiprocessing server code deliberately. Any chance of doing a real message
length check against the embedded message length check?

Might not hurt for documentation to state that raw sockets are not supported,
that you must use the client.
