Agreed that it is not possible for multiprocessing to choose an optimal default in all settings.  However, making the default adequate for more use cases sounds like a reasonable goal.

Currently, we are using `os.cpu_count()`. Ideally, we would have a second API `os.usable_cpu_count()` that would return the number of logical CPUs usable by the current process (taking into account affinity settings, cgroups, etc.).
