comment Converting projected geoTiff to WGS84 with GDAL and Python
At gdal 2.0 there is native support for multiprocessing - just append -wo NUM_THREADS=ALL_CPUS to your gdalwarp command.

comment Arcpy - How do I specify the precision and scale of a new field?
I think I didn't phrase my question well. I know that shapefiles support prec. and scale. and I know how to specify them when adding a field in ArcMap. What I don't know is why the values that I pass in via scripting (AddField) are not respected.

Yeah - When adding a new field via both the Attribute Table and ArcToolbox - the scale and precision values are respected.

As I said it's from shape to shape. By shape I mean shapefile.

comment Methods for optimizing multcore processing in ArcGIS
In my Arc experience, it almost always boils down to either 1) splitting your data up into {number of core} chunks, processing and reassembling or 2) reading everything into memory and letting x API handle the threading. note that this is not meant to discourage.

How could you tell he was doing it in a geoprocessing tool? Because it wasn't working?

Well, you got my hopes up, but that doesn't work for me. Neither the codeblock nor the straight up '!testing!'
