[OS X TeX] Mulicores?

pdflatex is a single threaded program and I believe that other tex engines, xelatex and lualatex, are too.
The processing of a latex file is pretty much sequential anyway, so it is hard to see how multithreading might help in this case. If someone has a different understanding of this, I would like to learn about it.
