Simple question can we multi-thread the TN-Grid wu's to make them run faster?

I think the short answer is "no", but a developer could answer more fully. However, the usual reason is to save memory. Since the work units here use less than 60 MB, there is not much reason to. You might just as well run more of them. They take less than four hours on my i7-4790 anyway under Ubuntu, and almost as fast under Windows.

Multithreading is only practical for certain types of problem. Applied to the wrong system, it can cause an increase in run time.
