  Description     : py.test plugin for running tests in isolated forked subprocesses

The pytest-forked plugin extends py.test by adding an option to run tests in
isolated forked subprocesses. This is useful if you have tests involving C or
C++ libraries that might crash the process. To use the plugin, simply use the
--forked argument when invoking py.test.

Needed as a dependency of pytest-xdist.  Plan to maintain as part of DPMT.
