Audacity and multi-core CPUs

Would be interesting to know if it’s feasible or desirable to allow Audacity to take advantage of multi-core/thread capabilities of modern CPUs to batch process multiple files at once .
Imagine the time savings …
Those familiar with the Convert function of dbPowerAmp will know exactly what I’m talking about.

Note; simultaneously posted to GitHub.

This is the biggest shortcoming of Audacity, that is, that it does not take advantage of modern CPUs.
I have an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G 16-core PC with 3 SSDs and only 2 threads (1 core) use 7-8%. It’s sad, that it works slower than a Pentium 4 PC…

I know it’s a lot of work, but it definitely needs to be done!
