NOTE(harlowja): Adjust all events to be proxies instead since we want those callbacks to be activated in this process, not in the child, also since typically callbacks are functors (or callables) we can not pickle those in the first place... To make sure people understand how this works, the following is a lengthy description of what is going on here, read at will: So to ensure that we are proxying task triggered events that occur in the executed subprocess (which will be created and used by the thing using the multiprocessing based executor) we need to establish a link between that process and this process that ensures that when a event is triggered in that task in that process that a corresponding event is triggered on the original task that was requested to be ran in this process. To accomplish this we have to create a copy of the task (without any listeners) and then reattach a new set of listeners that will now instead of calling the desired listeners just place messages for this process (a dispatcher thread that is created in this class) to dispatch to the original task (using a common accepting socket and per task sender socket that is used and associated to know which task to proxy back too, since it is possible that there many be *many* subprocess running at the same time). Once the subprocess task has finished execution, the executor will then trigger a callback that will remove the task + target from the dispatcher (which will stop any further proxying back to the original task).
