You can use different start methods in the same program by creating different contexts:

  spawn_ctx = multiprocessing.get_context('spawn')
  manager = spawn_ctx.Manager()

That would probably mean that proxy objects could not be inherited by *any* sub-process.  (You would then need to use some other way of sharing access between processes and to manage the lifetime of the shared object.)
