[PyQt] Multi-tasking and GIL

I have a quad-core linux machine and I would like to take advantage of all these extra cores to perform multiple heavy tasks simultaneously.

If i understood it correctly, the GIL will prevent me from multi-threading this heavy tasks in order to make them run in parallel.

My question is then, how to do this? Will QProcess be the solution? (the heavy tasks can either be ran by direct python acess through a run() function or in stand-alone when launched from the command line)

Thanks for your help
