At a practical level, I believe this setting is not used on the main
usegalaxy.org instance, and thus has not been stress tested by
the Galaxy developers.

Also (see below), it has little documentation.

I'm not entiruely sure, but I think it is how many task-splitters
would be run at once (e.g. several splittable jobs are submitted
together). We use local_task_queue_workers = 4 but I forget
why exactly.

I don't think there is anything explicit on the wiki about how
to use the parallelism tag :(
