OpenMP is cool.

I'd say the "take all cores" compile time switch will be a good start for
pure analytical workloads like mine. Machine is oversaturated anyways, if
it can return back to shell some minutes faster that would be great already.

My previous experiments with instrumenting PostGIS for that exploded on the
fact that palloc is not openmp-safe.
