I think that needs to be fixed on the multiprocessing side rather than just
in the tests - we shouldn't create a concrete context for a start method
that isn't going to work on that platform. Finding that kind of discrepancy
was part of my rationale for basing the skips on the available contexts
(although my main motivation was simplicity).

There may also be docs implications in describing which methods are
supported on different platforms (although I haven't looked at how that is
currently documented).
