also a build making more calls to make can result in
 jfactor * number of make calls jobs

Only if you're using a totally braindead implementation of make. The whole point of the jobserver pipe is to eliminate this fanout problem.

So I might regularily use maybe -j 10 (when I know 10 more calls to make are made) On some machines this might be unacceptable and bring them to their knees.
On other machines it can work really well.
