Default ZenV4 in parallel (not bridged)

Nelson has mentioned parallel Zens in some posts, but (unless I missed it) didn't talk about it in the V4 article. Has anyone else considered paralleling two amps to drive lower impedance and/or reduce driver dissipation per transistor?
I'm thinking of a 4 channel ZenV4 box that could be run as 1, 2 or 4 channels using parallel or bridging. A heatsink farm would be on top of the box.
Of course, Nelson, if you have any comments that would be great too.

You can parallel any of the Zen series. Just hook the
inputs and outputs in parallel, and Bob's your uncle!

Thank you, Nelson, that's what I figured but it's nice to hear it.
