[R] parallel processing for bridge and blasso

I'm running 10, 000 iterations each for the bridge and blasso. 3, 000 iterations roughly takes a week in a core-duo processor with 16GB RAM. I'll have access to a 6C processor machine and I came across the multicore package. Can I use multicore with the bridge and blasso function? That is, is parallel processing possible for the bridge and blasso functions by using the multicore package?

Kind Regards
