I have not been following this thread closely but the notion of a threaded GNU 
Parallel troubles me.  I use it to distribute jobs which may or may not be 
themselves multithreaded and I set --jobs according to the level of threading.  
I would not want to have to consider parallel's as part of the mix (unless of 
course I could force it to be single-threaded).
