> It will (obviously) not work with python 3.4 since self._selector won't have an _at_fork() method.

asyncio doc contains:
"The asyncio package has been included in the standard library on a provisional basis. Backwards incompatible changes (up to and including removal of the module) may occur if deemed necessary by the core developers."

It's not the case for selectors. Even if it would be possible to implement selector._at_fork() in asyncio, it would make more sense to implement it in the selectors module.

@neologix: Would you be ok to add a *private* _at_fork() method to selectors classes in Python 3.4 to fix this issue?

I know that you are not a fan of fork, me neither, but users like to do crazy things with fork and then report bugs to asyncio :-)
