FYI for anyone looking for a coding project to work on in Myth, a patch to
modify Myth to support more (?unlimited?) User Jobs would be very welcome.
I never thought that User Jobs would take off like they did or else I wouldn't
have limited it to four to begin with when I wrote the JobQueue.  I don't even
use them myself anymore since I wrote Storage Groups, so User Jobs changes are
low on my TODO list right now.
