To make this point more clear: I'm generally hesitant about basing the
availability of architecture-independent features ('ghc supporting
-j', which almost entirely was fixed in the frontend compiler
pipeline) on platform details, or the underlying hardware or execution
model GHC runs on. Unless the changes are very significant (like, -j
gets significantly faster), I think we should be very hesitant about
gating frontend features behind architectural/implementation details.
