Also worth noting: AIUI the -tbb fork of par2cmdline fixes bugs that were
present in the original version we currently have in Fedora, as well as taking
advantage of multiple cores. There is a compile-time option to disable the
TBB portions (but leave the fixes for the bugs) that we plan on using on
arches other than x86 and x86_64.
