Why can't one run more than one dired-do-async-shell-command at the same
Why not allow more than one?
shell-command: Shell command in progress
What if bash was also that way?
If it is a matter of what buffers it is writing to, then append their
names with <2> etc. or a process ID.
& runs the command dired-do-async-shell-command, which is an
interactive compiled Lisp function in `dired-aux.el'.
It is bound to &, <menu-bar> <operate> <async-command>.
(dired-do-async-shell-command COMMAND &optional ARG FILE-LIST)
Run a shell command COMMAND on the marked files asynchronously.
Like `dired-do-shell-command' but if COMMAND doesn't end in ampersand,
adds `* &' surrounded by whitespace and executes the command asynchronously.
The output appears in the buffer `*Async Shell Command*'.
