Multicore and multi-cpu machines are getting more and more common.

e.g. http://www.anandtech.com/systems/showdoc.aspx?i=2354&p=2
and http://www.electronicsweekly.com/articles/article.asp?liArticleID=38887&liArticleTypeID=1&liCategoryID=1&liChannelID=114&liFlavourID=1&sSearch=&nPage=1

Do the current implementations of par and forkIO in e.g. GHC take 
advantage multiple CPUs/cores or is special plumbing needed (GPH?)?
