I know, the documentation states that assymptotic exactness cannot be
guaranteed if using parallel=True. What I wasn't quite clear on is how
severe the consequences of this are. Is this a case of potentially
introducing a small error or is this a case of "we have no idea what the
answer will say"? If the latter is the case what would a sensible use case
be for switching parallel to True? (I am trying to use it to calculate
missing edges which even with parallel takes very long for the network so I
fear without it it would just not be feasible.)
