I was hoping that multitask would be deprecated in favor of task, and that
we could use `-jN' to specify the concurrent set of tasks to be operated
on, as with GNU and other make versions. I believe this is what drake does.
Any reason you didn't merge the drake code, which looks like the more
general solution?

At any rate, thanks for working on Rake!
