Thanks :) Yes, writing to disk as text. I'm wishing I'd piped through gzip  
though, it's going to hit some limit somewhere I suspect.

Yes, I thought a bit about that, but didn't have time.  I've not really  
had much experience of parallel processing.

There are lots of possible ways to go parallel, what did you use to break  
it up?  A simple way would be to just fork off n branches near the root,  
but then when one finishes, it's not clear how to get the next bit of work.
