comment Are there any concrete examples of where a paralellizing compiler would provide a value-adding benefit?
I'd ruled out raytracing for two reasons. First, as Michael Borgwardt observes, raytracing is "embarrassingly parallel". Secondly, raytracing is at the point where "optimizations" are more about algorithmic solutions (e.g. photon mapping).

Question asks for concrete examples where it would apply. Your answer provides general examples where it does not apply.

And yet there remain many which are, and which are very high $ value - such as raytracing. I'm not asking for your opinion on the worthiness of the subject matter. I'm asking for concrete experience.
