Of course "parallel loops" is "just less typing" than doing the same 
functionality in user code.

Same is true for the complete RTL.

In fact parallel loops ask for an automatically managed thread pool. 
This of course should be provided by a library. The "parallel"!, 
"future" and related keywords for enhancing the syntax would of course 
be "compiler candy" top make it more usable.
