It's not going to be tested widely if nobody knows it exists.  I suggest
we at least publicly document it (perhaps marking it as experimental).

'--control-granularity' and '--implicit-parallelism' are also options
that those experimenting with parallel conjuction should be aware
(although they are at least documented).
