[Bioc-devel] parallel support for Windows and RStudio

we are currently developing a package, which has parallel (mclapply)
support for some of the function. Because forking is not supported in
Windows and when using RStudio, the parallel functions fail. The easiest
solution would be to fall back on serial processing by setting the number
of cores to 1, but is a bit unsatisfying.

Is there an easy way for parallelisation under Windows/RStudio ? Do you
have any suggestions?
