Forgot to add: multiple operations concurrently in flight also means
that you can't used the moved-handler lifetime model any more, and
you'll probably need to switch to a shared-handler lifetime model instead.
Or create separate sub-handler operation objects for each parallel
action -- but in practice this will probably end up still requiring the
original parent object to have a shared lifetime.
