Agreed, that would be a mess.  I was thinking in terms of running steps in
parallel if they have independent output log files, so that that problem
wouldn't arise.  AFAIK, for example, we could run the per-subdirectory
"make check" tests in src/bin/ in parallel without incurring any
legibility issues.
