It's theoretically possible to parallelize operations within a partition, but I wouldn't worry
about exploiting all available parallelism. PageRank is typically communication-bound rather
than computation-bound, so it can be a net gain to reduce the amount of communication by using
fewer partitions even if that means sacrificing some parallelism.
