add --no-parallel option to GetComponents

Create issue
Issue #2395 open
Roland Haas created an issue

GetComponents will use parallel checkouts by if the required Perl modules are present. making the --parallel option (mostly) unnecessary. However there is no --no-parallel option that would allow one to disable parallel checkouts if those do not work for other reasons (server banning the client for example).
