FileIndex.writer with procs=0/None/False should create MpWriter

Issue #367 new

because MpWriter uses a false value to create procs=cpu_count()

    It's a mistake that the code in MpWriter that calls cpu_count() is essentially unreachable, but I don't think it makes intuitive sense to have procs=0/None/False use multiple processes.

    I think the right thing for now is for the user to call multiprocessing.cpu_count() themselves and pass the value to the procs= keyword argument.
