> ThreadedChildWatcher starts a thread per process but has O(1) complexity.

But it spawns a new Python thread per process which can be a blocker issue if a server memory is limited. What if you want to spawn 100 processes? Or 1000 processes? What is the memory usage?

I like FastChildWatcher!

> ... but working with asyncio subprocess API is still super complicated if asyncio code is running from multiple threads

Well, I like the ability to choose the child watcher implementation depending on my use case. If asyncio is only run from the main thread, FastChildWatcher is safe, fast and has low memory footprint, no?
