I adapted Mike Pall's mandelbrot implementation to be (very) crudely
multi-process, and submitted it. It's a near linear speedup, and it's
quite a bit faster than even some of the compiled languages, IIRC.
(Saying that, the monothreaded version was already faster than the
multithreaded Perl implementation.)
