Dear Herve & co,

Wish you a happy new year :-).

I am optimizing code that calls BSgenome::vcountPDict.
BSgenome::vcountPDict calls bsapply, which calls sapply.

Could this sapply be replaced by a bplapply instead - that would turn all the vcount, vmatch, etc operations into parallellized operations, by just a minimal intervention (sapply -> bplapply).

Or is there a reason why this was not done, or perhaps is there an alternative paradigm which you use for speeding up things?
