I think there is much more to do, since test suites might depend on other
test cases or test suites. There must be some sort of logic, how to identify
independent execution units and execute them, because even if some suite
cannot be run in parallel since it depends on other suite(s) or test cases,
it is still possible that all tcs in this suite can be run in parallel. May
be some sort of work stealing algorithm?
