Ability to run package steps in parallel
Often package steps can be run in parallel, which would speed up deployments when there are lot of steps. However, not all steps can be run in parallel, my suggestion is that you should be able to edit the ordinal for a step, and if two steps have the same ordinal then they will be run in parallel.
- Deploy Foo.Web
- Deploy Foo.ServiceA
- Deploy Foo.ServiceB
- Deploy Foo.ServiceC
The steps for Foo.ServiceA and Foo.ServiceB will be run in parallel, Foo.ServiceC will run after they have both finished.
Done in 2.6

This would be awesome, just make sure you handle this for Azure as well, making Azure a first class citizen.
