Goal

Does rehostuser have an option to run multiple backups in parallel?

For very large accounts, it can take as long as 12 hours to move a user from one backend to another.
For example, 550gig; 394,000 messages -- and that 394k messages is just the current messages.  Rehostuser -x is currently being used, so it is not known how many expunged messages also get moved.

For very active accounts, the second "half" of rehostuser -e can take as long as the first half.

There are many larger and active users who make extensive use of sieve fileinto.  So it is not just their INBOX folders which might change during a 12-hour rehostuser.

In some cases, it might be faster to not use rehostuser at all and write some type of script to handle this.  But, it would be preferable for rehostuser to handle this functionality, itself.
