Ah, I should have looked more closely at the docs to see if there was a public API for that before poking around in the package internals.

In that case, I suggest we change this bit in the test:

    # We look inside the context module to find out which
    # start methods we can check
    from multiprocessing.context import _concrete_contexts

to use the appropriate public API:

    # Need to know which start methods we should test
    import multiprocessing
    AVAILABLE_START_METHODS = set(multiprocessing.get_all_start_methods())

And then adjust the skip check to look in AVAILABLE_START_METHODS rather than _concrete_contexts.

I'll make that change tonight if nobody beats me to it.
