I think we should be open to discussing the name, but I will have to
defer to Doug as to whether other names were considered/discarded.
It seems the convention we are adopting for naming these new methods,
whose implementation is parallelized, is to prefix the name with
'parallel' ( parallelSort, parallelSetAll ). Sounds fine. Otherwise I
would have preferred something like prefixScan(..).
Options so far:
parallelPrefix(..) // what we have today
parallelPrefixScan(..) // too long winded??

Yes, I will add this.
