MSVC has two knobs for parallel compilation: the compiler switch /MP which
can be set per project or per source file, and "Number of parallel builds"

So I suppose the cmake system could generate projects without /MP, but the
other setting is out of its control.
And I'm not sure it makes a good default to cripple the buildsystem like
this. For every user it helps, it will kill the experience for somebody
