Thank you very much for this contribution.

Paul, it looks like the patch is large enough to require legal papers
from Troy, is that right?

Troy, I have 2 requests:

  . could you please post a short description of how this
    implementation of the job server works, and in particular how it
    makes sure all the make jobs together don't exceed the argument of
    the --jobs=N option?

  . could you please submit ChangeLog entries for each function you
    changed or added?

Thanks again for working on this.
