[Twisted-Python] multiprocessing capability?

Hello everyone,
I have done something similar to this, but I used the children IO
stream to control them. Maybe I should have done that using some
higher level protocol, such as AMP or PB.
(I think AMP is more robust than PB, though)
The project that uses the children IO and process protocols is Lunch.
See http://svn.sat.qc.ca/trac/lunch
