P: Prevent Merging from interrupting workflow

Hi Community,
Most of my work in LR involves HRD. My Typical day I have 40-50 shots of 5 shot HRD to Merge (some are Panos) My issue is that the software is unusable while the merge is happening, even on my aging system with 14 cores @ 4.5Ghz and 256GB of ram. I could be editing/exporting the previous image while the next merge is happening. This increases my editing time by a factor of 2 most nights, so if it were able to be implemented I (and others) could save 1/2 on edit time!
I understand that larger panos take longer than simple merges but at least I could be taking care of edits rather than just sitting here watching a progress bar. Great software but......

To be clear yes 200-250 images on average, sometimes as many as 600!

If the parameters (in this case mostly ghosting) are the same, then when accomplishing a Photo Merge HDR, you do not have to go the slow way involving bringing up a preview. (and being stuck waiting for the preview creation) You can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+H, then once the merge starts, you can accomplish something else, such as another merge. Mind you, too many merges at the same time will bog the system down.
