(I am not in favor of this feature but not strongly opposed neither but..)
I think a similar analogy is:
$ make -jX #where X is the number of physically available cores.
If I am working/browsing/text editing, etc and building say WebKit in the
background, I really do not set X to actually number of cores. When I do,
it actually slows my whole system.
