Efficient Multi Core Processing of RAW files
When converting RAW images, process one image per core. Similar to SETI@home. It may not be efficient to split the conversion of an image across multiple cores but running 4-16 conversions at a time would speed up the overall batch. I don't know if this means that ACR would need to spawn as many instances of itself as there are cores or not. Of course this is memory and disk bandwidth limited, but that can be addressed by the user.
