What do you mean by "limited"?

Process groups really help to prevent to leak grandchild processes in multiprocessing tests, when tests are interrupted manually by CTRL+C or by a timeout (sadly, only when the timeout is handled by regrtest, not when it's handled by faulthandler).

See bpo-38502 for the rationale.
