[ejabberd] extauth: parallel or serial?

Hi folks,

If I were to write an extauth script for ejabberd would ejabberd run
multiple copies at the same time to authenticate users in parallel?
What happens when a lot of users try to authenticate at the same time?
Will the single instance serially authenticate them all? I've seen
comments mentioning that more than one copy of the extauth script may
be running but I haven found anything that says conclusively what
controls this and how it handles parallelism.

Thanks for you guys folks!
