Yes, but normally (in a non-Ipython session) the pickle succeeds and points to
__main__.f which is available in the child processes created by
processing.Pool - so one is able to pass the pickled function
successfully. So it would be nice if Ipython supported pickling
interactive objects (ie in __main__) properly so that the processing
module can be used interactively...
