@RickyDemer: in fact, parallelism-resistance can be argued to be a bad thing for password hashing, because the attacker has all the parallelism he can wish for (he has many potential passwords to hash) while the defender gets password one at a time. If the defender has a parallel architecture (e.g. a GPU or even a PC with a few cores) then he may prefer a function that supports moderate parallelism. Heavy-duty authentication servers benefit from parallelism by virtue of running multiple password-based authentication simultaneously.
