Conservative is one thing, but drake was written 2 years ago. There has
been no response every time someone asks why drake was not merged.

Furthermore, this -j behavior is so different from GNU make and other build
tools that it raises the wrong expectations from users. It should not be
called -j. Reserve -j for when drake is eventually (if ever) merged.
