Yeah, it appears to be the case that both Gather and GatherMerge
inevitably end up with nworkers_launched == nreaders, which seems
dumb.  If we're going to clean this up, I think we should  make them
both match.

I'm not clear that there's any fundamental solution to that problem
other than trying to clarify it through comments.

Meantime, I think it's not good to leave this crashing, so I pushed
Rushabh's v2 patch for the actual crash for now.
