[TIP] Problems with coverage.py + Django + FastCGI

Hi David,

It looks like manage.py runfcgi defaults to using a pre-forking mode
where a pool of processes handle the requests. By default coverage is
only able to install its trace function in the main process. Also the
threaded mode of flup uses the low level thread module which coverage
also can not track. Directions for tracking subprocess coverage are
here http://nedbatchelder.com/code/coverage/subprocess.html .
