Hi Antoine,

> ... an implementation detail rather than a documented feature

I understand your desire, but this is a leaky abstraction and I would still suggest that it should be more clear that the fork method will inherit *all* resources from the parent, including multiprocessing internal resources related to other processes.  This is potentially important if there are (a) large numbers of processes to be created and (b) for security aspects.
