I googled around but have not found any such request mentioned before. I'd want 
to run
find . -name "*.csv" -exec gzip {} +
in parallel. I was looking in "man find" for a make-like -j, did /arallel but 
nothing popped up. I found then later xargs' -P
option (great, I'll use that next time) and GNU Parallel somewhen later. So, 
the technology and the CLI for those tools are all
long available. However, I'd rather strongly suggest to have parallel execution 
integrated more visibly with find. The SEE ALSO
section of the man page could have a pointer at least. I have no idea for other 
tools that could possibly use some more parallelism.

Many thanks
