there is this talk by Guy Steele where he discusses the idea of
language concepts that leave the language implementation some "wiggle
room" for optimisation through parallelisation. Maybe that's
inspiring.

Let me see if I can find it ... yup:
http://www.infoq.com/presentations/Thinking-Parallel-Programming

The first few minutes are a bit off-topic but still amusing, but then
he gets to the details, and those are really interesting.

Best,
