            Bug ID: 9511
           Summary: xargs does not support parallel -P
           Product: Busybox
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Standard Compliance
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: jadit2 at gmail.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

A critically needed feature I use a lot is GNU xargs parallel operations. Often
the parallel xargs operations are better than the cli util "parallel" for my
use-cases. 

Example:
find samplegz | xargs -n1 -P4 sh parse.sh

P4 says have at most 4 commands running at the same time
