 GitHub has recently announced a new `concurrency` key for use at the
 workflow and job level to ensure only a single workflow run or job is in
 progress. When used in combination with the `cancel-in-progress` key,
 incomplete workflow runs can be cancelled automatically to prevent running
 workflows unnecessarily.

 The feature is currently in beta. However, once it's stable enough, this
 can replace the need to rely on the 3rd party `styfle/cancel-workflow-
 action` action.
