[IPython-user] Trivial Parallelization (Redux)

Hi All,

I'm having a little trouble getting past the "first usage" hurdle of  
IPython parallelization. (This is likely a FAQ.) It's closely related  
to Jose Gomez-Dans' thread from earlier this month, but with an added  

I'm trying to use TaskClient.map() to do its job, but the added  
wrinkle beyond Jose's case is that my "function" is actually a bound  
method of an object rather than a pure function.  The TC code throws a  
TypeError, complaining that a task function must be a FunctionType.  
(Quite true, a bound method is not a pure FunctionType...)

Is there any easy workaround, perhaps via defining a doIt() type  
function that was mentioned in that previous thread? If so, I've not  
been able to discover it...

TIA for any help you might be able to provide!
