Bravo!  Sounds like solid benchmarking of a large group using a large cluster.
Your -j20 results roughly match mine -- we found improvements up to -j12 or -j16
on another largish codebase built using gnu make on a large cluster.

Looking forward to your proxy code.  We may arbitrarily attempt
to rewrite it in C sometime just to match the rest of the system,
but prototyping in python is a great idea.
