Geekbench parallel mode?

Most of our workload is from single-core jobs running on a cluster. So for us, an appropriate benchmark ("Geekbench parallel mode") would be:

- driver checks machine specs, finds N cores
- driver starts N copies of the single-threaded Geekbench (ie does not run the multithreaded bits)
- for best results, the various pieces of each of the N would be run in random order, that is different order for each copy

the randomization is meant to emulate single-user jobs with uncorrelated workloads.

Is there a mode like this or could you make it?
