I'm not sure I know how to do it.  But that's not the main reason.

I think that adding parallelism might bring additional problems, which
could be hard to debug.  For example: make has a limit on the number of
processes; in shell, you probably have to count the number of processes

I am somehow afraid that attempts to parallelize might bring problems
with backward compatibility.

Well, on a second thought, you are probably right, paralellism in the
next thing to do.  I just don't plan to do it.
