Mmmm, it sounds like it depends on the implementation (and how all workers
will share the same serializable transaction or just be independant jobs),
but my point here is more about giving the user a name they are used to.
Like in "oh, pg_restore -j, I see, thanks".

Now, if your argument is that the make concept of job does not match the
parallel pg_restore concept of workers, I'll simply bow to your choice:
baring other "limits", English not being my natural language makes it hard
for me to follow there ;)
