That's because it's not meant for general use by users.  The -j and
-V are undocumented options for the JobQueue to use to pass information
to mythtranscode and mythcommflag.  -j passes in the JobQueue ID number
and -V passes in the numerical value of the current verbose level that
mythbackend or mythjobqueue is running as.  The -V is what allows
mythtranscode and mythcommflag child processes to honor the -v setting
that was passed in when you ran mythbackend or mythjobqueue.
