Hi all

I want to thanks the dev of portupgrade. It save lots of my time and
work fine. 

But I just think about our new computer with the lot of core, a standard
server have dual proc with quad-core that's mean 8 core availble. 

In the next version of portupgrade, IMHO it's good idea to have option 
to make portupgrade working with many proc. Because what I known many ports
cannot by compile with «-j8» option. In that case when we make

	portupgrade --all -b

we have just one compilation. It's enough when we have 1 or 2 procs. But
now with 8 or more proc....

If portupgrade can calculate the depency and launch many ports build in
same time for non-depending ports it's can be wonderful.

But it's just a idea..... Maybe it's already in the roadmap ...

Unfortunaly I'm not a developpers and cannot help.
