It'd be great if we had a map option for people on the same side to be able to take their turns simultaneously, without having to wait for the other allies to finish. In essence, each side would take and finish a turn and the next side would go.

In many "survival"-type games, or games with an ally or two, this could provide very useful and especially time-saving.

In a co-op game with 5 allies all fighting one opponent, currently the wait can be so incredibly long when the goal is just killing the opponent units; it's not unheard of for these games to last 3 or 4 hours, most of the time simply waiting for another player to take his/her turn.

Implementing this feature would speed up many, many Wesnoth multiplayer games. If a single turn took 1 minute and there are 20 rounds in the game, between 6 players and the computer that's over two hours. If instead all players moved within a longer duration of 2 minutes, you'd be looking at a manageable 1 hour.
