I agree with Austin that it is not a good gsoc project, largely because it is a mix of 'impossible' and 'trivial'.

Some tests can't be run in parallel because they change the screen resolution, e.g. ddraw, d3d8, d3d9, etc. Some user32 tests test handling of window focus loss and restore, which breaks if a separate test opens a window in a bad moment.

Dan Kegel once upon a time made a list of tests that can be parallelized.
