5 hmm, true, but that's the level we currently parallelize at, so it's fine. we
6 do one subprocess per ELF and that includes the strip/splitdebug/splitsources.
8 parallelizing more than on a per-ELF basis will require much finer grained
9 queues which, while possible, would make the file much harder to hack on and
10 extend. and i'm not sure we'd see that much of a gain.
