A parallel version of PHENIX was discussed before. I know that 
parallelization of refinement is difficult, and probably not worth the 
effort when there is still a lot of function/methods work. However, 
running parallel independent tasks could pay off without a lot of work. 
For example, optimization of WXU and WXC can spawn multiple tasks with 
different test weights. Annealing tasks could also run multiple jobs, 
and pick the best result, or even merge results based on real-space fit
