Can we let this stuff die for now and get some experience with the
code in the tree ?

I am not against further improvements, but I want to make sure they
_are_ improvements before we do them.

One other thing I want people to be aware off is that optimal -j
argument now is likely different from what it was previously.

Based on my experiments I think that a good starting point is the
number of cpus plus one or two.

(I'm very interested in benchmark results of course).

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
