I don't think we should do this unless users demand it, which means we
should wait for the next release and some time beyond before making
the decision.

FWIW, I'm running 8-way parallel Make jobs for many months now, and
never had any trouble interpreting their output, neither when they
succeed, nor when they don't.

The synchronized output operation annoys me slightly in that there are
distinct time intervals when Make says nothing at all, and then the
output appears in large chunks that get dumped en-masse to the
screen.  IOW, the user experience is different and takes time to get
used to.
