I've been waiting for that for a long time, but I don't know of any
satisfying approach.

Even OpenMP, which is included in the compiler and is supposed to do
that kind of thing, will always parallelize and won't even consider a
hierarchy between nested potentially-parallelizable tasks.
I've even heard that nesting parallel tasks within other parallel tasks
was ill-advised with OpenMP.
