I really really really do not think that this should be the default.
Consider that users of SMP machines, especially those running KDE, might
appreciate having one cpu/core available for their desktop work while a
portupgrade is in progress in the background. Jacking up the load to the
possible maximum does not make for a smooth desktop experience.

To clarify: What I am not going to do is to make something like this the
default, unconditionally, for everybody. A switch for people interested
in this is always possible. If you have patches for bsd.kde.mk /
bsd.qt.mk which implement this and work for you, feel free to submit them.
