With the series support in production, I realized that postfix did not
serialize the spawing of parsemail.sh. I couldn't find clear
documentation about that specific case: serializing mail delivery to a
mailbox is possible, not sure when postfix is piping the mail to a
another process.

Instead of digging further and look at postfix code, implementing the
serialization in parsemail.py itself seemed like a good idea: this will
work independently to the MTA used. Not only that, but it'd also work if
we do crazy things like allowing to submit patches through another entry
