To me, fixing make et al. is more work and less effective then adding a feature to bitbake. The only way to know how much memory the compiler will use for each spawned compiler is to let it run. And then it's too late.
This memory issue is all over our eco system and nobody cares (kernel, make etc.) The only thing moving is systemd's oom killer will arrive and start killing processes. So that will just stop our builds from completing.
Yeah, I prefer a babysitter over a child murderer :-)
