Re: multiprocessing shared arrays and numpy

Extended module that I used for some useful work.
Comments:
  1. Sturla's module is better designed, but did not work with very large (although sub GB) arrays
  2. Tested on 64 bit linux (amd64) + python-2.6.4 + numpy-1.4.0

There is a work by Sturla Molden: look for multiprocessing-tutorial.pdf
and sharedmem-feb13-2009.zip. The tutorial includes what is dropped in
the cookbook page. I am into the same issue and going to test it today.
