I still haven't come to any conclusions, and made quite a mess trying to add on work completed messages.

So I decided to make the next one[1] which uses the soon to be std.parallelism.

And the disappointment there is that parallel foreach doesn't seem to work with a standard ForwardRange. Otherwise it works as expected.

Currently I have set the size to 10,000 and put a OnCrowding.throwException, though I wanted it to block, changing it will result in a program that won't exit, and it will not have finished processing all the calls. The last option of ignoring will result in many calls not being finished.
