Hi there ...

I vote for changing the first paragraph in OPTIONS:

| If command is given, GNU parallel will behave
| similar to xargs.

I think this misleading, as in fact it is more like

  parallel     <-->  xargs -n 1
  parallel -m  <-->  xargs

Ole is not sure what'd be the least confusing. He
suggested to discuss this on the mailinglist, so
here we are. I think we should mention "-n 1" to
help people that do not read the entire manpage.
