[Pkg-phototools-devel] Bug#809702: Please support parallel optimization

Package: optipng
Version: 0.7.5-1
Severity: wishlist

optipng could spread its trials (or multiple files if given on the
command line) across all CPUs to improve performance.

I would suggest adding a new option "-jN" to enable parallel operation,
defaulting to the number of CPUs on the system
