Michael can correct me if I'm wrong, but the -j option just limits the number of concurrent tasks used to service the "multitask" task targets.  Multitask is an existing rake facility that the -j option makes more usable.

Drake actually changes the semantics of the regular rake tasks so that they run in parallel.
