In my particular case this is about DSA-signatures in Thunderbird with 
Enigmail. These are
very slow to re-check for messages with large attachments. I have a low-end 
25-W PC only
some notebooks and other embedded devices may also be affected by this problem.
When there are 3 to 4 compute-cores available and only one of them is used for
crypto-operations, obviously things are going slower than they could be.
Concerns about parallelizing crypto-code are generally understandable, because 
don't want to give away code-integrity and -safety for speed and 
auto-parallelizing does
not seem recommendable.
In spite of that, things should not deliberately be additionally worsened by
double-checking without any real need to do so.
