That would be great addition, I think I would keep it in r.tile, r.untile
sounds a little weird. I don't think I would have time to look at it
either, but please put it in sandbox, so that it's somewhere.

I am also having problem that sometimes I am getting
RuntimeError "Execution of subprocesses was not successful"

it appears randomly, once or twice in 100 runs, but it causes quite a bit
of trouble. On Windows I was getting this in half of the cases (but with
different data and use case so it's difficult to compare). I think the
GridModule is great and makes parallelization so much easier, so I would
love to see it working more reliably. It's clear to me that you don't have
time to look at it now, neither do I, so I am mainly reporting these

Thank you!
