This is one setting that won't be going away as long as I'm working on
the JobQueue. Sometimes people don't want to devote all resources or
cores to running jobs. I put a patch in the ticket and asked for
comments on it, but no one even tried it to the best of my knowledge.
I don't know if it still applies to current trunk or not, but this
feature is low on my priorities list and needs to give the user the
option of picking their own max # of jobs or setting the value to 'Auto'
and letting the JobQueue decide how many jobs to run. If it doesn't do
that, it won't go in. Long story short, I'm not currently working on
this ticket, so if anyone can update and test the patch I attached, it
would go a long way towards getting this feature implemented.
