As far as I can see they are mostly equivalent.  For instance, ApplyResult (the type returned by Pool.apply_async()) is virtually the same as a Future.

When you say "explicit message passing", do you mean creating a queue and making the worker tasks put results on that queue?  Why can't you do the same with ThreadPoolExecutor?
