On my gentoo system it prints hi four times in 2.7, and 3.2 through 3.6.  I suspect multiprocessing is killing threads, daemon or not, when the main process thread ends.  I expect that's a feature, although I didn't find it documented.

Ah, found the explanation: issue 18966.  Antoine indicates this could indeed be considered a bug but is part of a larger issue.  If we aren't going to fix it, we should probably document it.
