I'm not sure how great an idea this is.  run-parts(8) specifically

 Files are run in the lexical sort  order  of  their  names  unless  the
 --reverse option is given, in which case they are run in the
 opposite order.

So it's quite possible that by running things in parallel you'll screw
up an inter-script dependancy chain.
