Again, this confuses me.

Who, or why would someone start 10 LFS builds all on the same machine.

Anyone who does this would be asking for trouble.

Of course, I'm ruling out the fact that multiple people may be trying
to build on the same machine. This would be a coordination problem,
and not something that should be looked after via software.
