I think this is more analogous to event based programming rather than parallel 
programming.  Event based and parallel based have some similarities but the 
are fundamentally different.  Humans typically interact with events and only 
occasionally are able to walk and chew gum at the same time.

Though not fully specified, Perl 6 will have as all the tools necessary to 
make event driven programs - but there isn't a way to do so automatically.  
It will take work.  I'd argue the same is true for parallel.
