Orca multicore optimization?

Is it possible to optimize Orca for dual or multicore processors? Here is a screenshot while Orca is rendering a very long comment thread on Digg:

As you can see, core 1 is essentially maxed out, and cores 2-4 aren't splitting the load evenly. On my old dual core, core 1 would also max out on similar tasks, with core 2 taking only 5-10% of the load. It would be ideal if Orca could be optimized to utilize dual or multicore!

Thanks,

Come to think of it, I'd imagine this would be more an issue with the Gecko engine, and not Orca, right?
