How complicated is it to override mkDerivation in nixpkgs passing
  parallelBuilding = true ?

I think we have a documentation issue. There should be flag such as:

  parallelBuildingPossible = "yes/sometimes/no";

instead of parallelBuilding = true.

Then Michale Raskin's tests would not fail on packages which are known
to not build correctly ...
