    I suppose I'm lumped in with the "SD advocates" now but you will note
    that I haven't been bickering about make -j5 loads. You cut away the
    entire meat of my reply which was all that predictability harping.

    What I did say about make -j5 loads is that I do not think that they,
    under all circumstances, on all machines and at all cost, need to
    perform the same as currently if other situations improve. Do I want
    heuristics? Sure, I'm just saying the kernel is fundamentally incapable
    of getting it right all of the time and as such it should provide me
    with as many opportunities as possible at stepping in. That is, let me
    understand what it is and is going to be doing and then listen to me.

    I agree not a lot of progress is to be made if people keep ignoring each
    other like that but also while SD's author is offline. Let's just shelve
    it until he's back. Not bury though...
