There is no reason to expose "stop the forkserver" to users. How the forkserver process works, what tasks it handles, is an implementation detail. If users start "stopping the forkserver" in their applications for no good to reason, they might get bugs now or later that they wouldn't get otherwise.

Side note: if you're modifying multiprocessing, asking for a review doesn't hurt ;-)
