Hello Yocto developers!

recently I found a really nice make feature, that tunes at runtime the number 
of parallel
execution jobs, according to the current system load [1].

I think such a feature would be really nice on server were multiple yocto 
builds are run in parallel,
and when people forgets to put the correct number of parallel build jobs.

E.g., a number around CPU+1 is nice, but sometimes CPU*2 gives better results.
Unfortunately if somebody else starts a build in parallel, that CPU*2 locks 
really hard the server, specially
when building qt-based projects (e.g. qtbase, qtwebengine).

Tuning such value at runtime will probably end in faster compilation time and 
lower swapping on remote
(I would think also to something that checks the amount of free RAM)

is such a feature feasible?
