    cooker: Split recipes to parse amongst threads ahead of time
    We have two choices, split the recipes amongst the parsing threads in
    blocks ahead of time, or have a queue which parsers pull from when idle.
    The optimum approach depends on how similar the pieces are. For the single
    recipe reparse case, there is currently a significant wait for the feeder
    thread to start (around 0.25s in a 2s command).
    Its possible splitting into blocks in advance may be unluckly for some other
    workloads but experimentally it seems to work better overall for me at least.
