VariantRecalibrator and ApplyRecalibration parallel modes

Dear GATK,

The table here does a great job indicating which modes of parallelism are supported by a handful of tools, but how do we find out about the other tools?

The doc pages for these tools discuss -nt and -nct, but what about scatter-gather? How do I know what's supported by Queue?

I'm specifically interested in AR and VR.

    Actually the PartitionBy info is already included in the tool docs, so you can look it up for any tool you're interested in.
