This is basically the latest incarnation of ParallelFuture, but with
improved documentation. A lot has changed, though, since the first
incarnation. Here are some of the more important changes:
1. Parallel map and reduce.
2. Merge Task and Future.
3. foreach(i, elem; pool.parallel(range)) now works.
4. ref foreach now works even for non-random access ranges. (It's
implemented by incrementally copying pointers into an array.)
5. Worker-local storage.
