(all this for post-branch obviously) It may be time to drop the MAKE_JOBS_SAFE, basically declaring that if you're running 9, you should have up updated along the branch by now. This puts the bad behavior and onus to deal on those who have not updated, and I'd guess few of them are building rust. The other point is that the preferred bulk build approach is many jobs and each of them -j1, but I know that 1) doesn't address non-bulk use and 2) some people do bulk with few jobs and -jN, for various reasons.
