I would also be interested in performance improvements of certain
algorithms by taking advantage of the multi-core processors we have
nowadays. The fork-join framework of java 7 looks clean and simple to
use, so I guess it is somehow a logical target for a library as CM.

I would be in favor of this too, but we could also target it for the 4.0
release together with the parallelization stuff.
