Summarising where I think we're up to so far:

* ParGroup,SeqGroup - not descriptive enough
* ParallelGroup,SequenceGroup - spelling of Parallel is troublesome
* SyncGroup,SequenceGroup
   - 'Sync' may have other meanings (but ok?)
   - Both start with 's' = hard to distinguish?

My vote is still with SyncGroup.

One more alternative (which if nothing else might just make SyncGroup 
seem better), is TogetherGroup.

i.e. TogetherGroup and SequenceGroup and <together> and <sequence>.

A bit weird I guess, not to mention long.

Any more suggestions?

Best regards,
