Thanks, I've moved this entry down and clarified the capabilities - I think there's quite a big difference to the user (of a multi-core machine) as to whether parallelism happens by default, or whether they have to work out how to introduce it into the operation they're trying to perform. > I think the second point is the most characteristic in BFG (and that > is what allows easy parallelization of the filtering).

I've moved this up to the first bullet-point and added text emphasising the significance the constraint plays in making the BFG work quickly while satisfying the common use-case.
