This wouldn't be a problem in general - it possibly gives some speedup when one of the builds is waiting for some external resource - but it adds way too much noise to the SqueakTrunkPerformance job's results. The last few builds are quite okay, but previous runs look like noise only: http://build.squeak.org/job/SqueakTrunkPerformance/performance/

Another way is to ensure it runs on another host which provides just one executor.
