I have added a command line flag (-n) which causes the name of the
sending process to prefix output, unless the command is interactive.

It looks like this: startpar -n -t 1 process-a process-b

process-a: Starting process...
process-b: Starting process...
process-b: Done.
process-a: Done.

This will be in the next release of startpar. I'm looking at adding a
newline to the end of output too.
