Presumably, if you have a reasonable number of cores - speeding the cores
up will be better than forking a task into smaller and smaller chunks -
because at some point the overhead of multiple processes would be a
bottleneck - maybe due to streaming reads and writes?  I'm sure each and
every problem has a different sweet spot.
