The buildsystem is a bit strange in this regard ;-)  There are 2 levels
of what is done in parallel - one on the level of directories, and one
on what is done in the directory itself.  Ie. if you did what you
propose, you'd get max-cpus * max-jobs in the 'ideal' situation.

Icecream has the advantage that it has a scheduler, and chooses the
fastest and least loaded machines in the farm.  Of course, using distcc
is also an option, and you are right that it would be good to disable
the warnings if one already uses distcc.  Unfortunately I am using
icecream, so I am not a good candidate to do a patch for that ;-)
