You need to make it possible for each maintainer to declare their port as 
"parallel safe". The end-users should be able to prevent such parallelization 
from taking effect as well as to overwrite the actual number of parallel 
streams (which should default to some derivation of the number of 

Once you do that, declaring each port as safe -- and dealing with the 
edge-cases -- will be up to the maintainers. There really is no other way.

The most-recently discussed PR is an acceptable way to move forward. The 
actual work on providing the framework is trivial... Turning the individual 
ports over will be harder, but that -- again -- can only be done by the
