I was wondering, has anyone attempted to patch ddrescue to take
advantage of multi-threading? I found a couple of threads in the
mailing list that suggest something like this.

Dave Yost suggests using multiple threads to read the data concurrently:


Antonio Diaz suggests that a separate thread to update the command

But I couldn't find any further work done in this direction, so I
thought I'd take this up as a little experimental project.

Are there potential roadblocks? How exactly would multi-threading harm
