CruiseControl.NET, MSBuild and Multicore CPUs

When I was trying to debug a continuous build timeout at work recently, I came across this Scott Hanselman post about parallel builds and builds with multicore CPUs using MSBuild.  While adding /m to the buildArgs tag in my ccnet.config didn’t solve my timeout problem (putting the same unit tests into a different class did), pooling multiple MSBuild processes will certainly help as our builds get bigger.
