Terry, I think the best place to make a note of this would be at [1,2].

As for what should be noted, something along the lines of what Richard mentioned should suffice.

"A pool should only be used by the process that created it (unless you use a managed pool)."

I am not certain what the best way to phrase this would be, but it would also be helpful to note that this will cause unexpected behavior if a script imports a module that uses a Pool and forks (ie. uses Process() or another Pool()). This is how I bumped into this issue.

Hope this helps.
