Herm, I would have found it if the manpage didn't lack keywords like
"parallel", "simultaneous", ... Reassigning.
That being said, I guess xargs lacks one parallel feature:
-g Group output. Output from each jobs is grouped together and is only printed
when the command is finished. STDERR first followed by STDOUT. -g is the
default. Can be reversed with -u.
A lot of applications (including md5sum) would not necessarily print
their output atomically and then you get mixed output. Either we add
the option to findutils, or we package parallel.
