Last time I hacked around the multiprocessing plugin it was not
joining with the child processes (or at least I think it wasn't).  I
wanted to enable nose-cov to work with multiprocessing, which it can
do easily as long as the parent process waits for the child processes
to finish up then it can merge all coverage data.

I also remember Arve hacking up the built in cover plugin and
multiprocessing plugin to work together.  Did any of that work make it
back into nose?

Also waiting on the plugins branch for my unittest2-cov ;-)
