This is what I meant by deprecating. Maybe even providing a message that if
--file is set that it is deprecated for --path.

Ok, so why not just make parallel the only mode for partitioned. Then you
remove the need for --parallel and --path would work for any region,
non-partitioned would create a single file at that path and partitioned
would create several? I am all for less options. ;)
