Does the tezos-node work on the mempool in a single or multithreaded fashion ?

Would it be useful/necessary or not in order to scale-up the throughput of the chain when the number of transactions to validate will grow ?

NB: just noticed this merge request that seems to go in the direction of allowing multiple processes to validate blocks

The current version of the Tezos node is mono-threaded. Indeed, there is work in the direction of parallelisation, it is probably better to do so through multiple processes than through multithreading, more error prone.
