Utilize isParallel in Deployments


The new isParallel annotation is useful for running quicker tests in Apex Text Execution and Developer Console, but the real potential power would be to utilize that same annotation during code deployment.

Many organizations have deploy times of 1+ hours, and reducing that can be an extremely difficult and time-consuming task while maintaining proper code coverage and asserts.

The idea would be that those test classes that do no have the annotation would continue to run serially (or where those are specifically marked isParallel=false), and all others would run in parallel, which would dramatically reduce deploy time.
