Um, if you're speaking of select_parallel, that already runs in parallel
with two other regression tests, and there is no annotation in the
parallel_schedule file suggesting that adding more scripts to that group
would be bad.  But yes, perhaps putting this test into its own standalone
group would be enough of a fix.
