I'm afraid I didn't have a good reason. I figured it would be good
to have the flexibility -- and perhaps future changes to pandoc could
make better use of it. I did benchmark a bit and found that specifying
multiple cores with RTS options actually made pandoc run slower.
I did not try benchmarking the version linked with -threaded but run
with one core against a version linked without -threaded.
This change could be reversed, and maybe it should be.
