tool to run scripts in parallel ?

For some sysadmin task, I need to start from a main script several
sub-scripts take some time (copying files around over ssh, running
remote commands, ...), and which are mostly independants. What I'd
need is a tool (can be a perl module, as the main script is
written in perl) that would run start all those sub-scripts in
parallel, collect stdout/stderr and print it once the script is
complete (print stdout/stderr as a whole, no interleaved outputs), and
return a 0 exists status if all scripts did run or != 0 if one script
failed. Does anyone know such a tool ?

make may do it but it will not exactly what I want with stdout/stderr ...
