This sounds simple enough that it would be worth trying. Perhaps first
outisde the real gnugo project, but if it shows any promise, then it could
be merged in with only little pain.

Some of us have (access to) dual-cpu machines, and maybe even bigger, and
might want to see how they perform.

If someone wants to do it, I'd say go ahead and try. Let us know what
difference it makes, and submit a patch. If the code is clean enough, we
should accept it.
