I'm a little skeptical of that too.  However, I'd note that with a "make"
you're not likely to care, or possibly even notice, if the thing does
something like go completely to sleep for a little while, or if some
sub-jobs proceed well while others do not.  The fact that "-l 8" works
okay for make doesn't necessarily translate to more-interactive use cases.
