Problem Description:
At the moment all dsc resources are executed serially. given that dependencies are allready specified, it would in theory be safe to execute steps in parallel.

I'm guessing this is planned at some point but i could really use a way to enable parallel execution because I'm using dsc to spin up test environments with a bunch of services and having those being set up in parallel would speed things up considerably.

        This could potentially be problematic as monitoring tools would now be reporting full CPU load for a periodic period. People monitoring this would find it hard to distinguish this from true peaks in CPU load. This could in turn lead to oversized resources etc. If this is implemented the appropriate monitoring tool support would be needed.
