Well... I vaguely recall some experiments back in school,
where the peculiarities of parallel programming were
illustrated precisely with tty output from several
processes running in parallel. (:

(I'm glad to see that education finally paying off. :)

I assume that the shootout harness tries to verify that
the total output conforms with the template, so yes,
I think a collector is needed. The computations should
be parallelized - not the printouts.
