Not that I know, although it's often a good idea to provide a
configuration knob such that the user of the software can decide how
many threads to use.

If we want to add such functionality, it's OS-specific, but it seems
that today several systems support sysconf(3) with _SC_NPROCESSORS_CONF
and _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN (I just verified on NetBSD and Linux though).
