Yep. I think parallel loops and futures like defined in Prism might be 
quite  user-friendly.

Regarding an implementation fast enough to take real advantage of 
multiprocessor boxes, a native support for Futex (instead of going via 
the pthread library) might be helpful (no idea about the Windows and Mac
