It occured to me that in order to provide a multi-process implementation for
some functionality, so that this feature is transparent to the clients, we
would need somehing like process groups. Using it, one could for example
easily and dynamically extend Joe's mini-web server so that it can handle
FTP requests, or anything asking for a file.

However, the pg module is still experimental. Are there plans to develop it
