OK, looked into it. As far as I can tell there are a fair number of
steps that can be run in parallel, and hence would benefit from a
multi-core system (assuming an appropriate amount of RAM is available).
It would take some changes to the Python script to run things
asynchronously though. Ideally it would be as simple as doing some
multi-threading in Python, but that's not something I've ever done.
