Even if it did, who cares?  On an otherwise idle machine priority
shouldn't slow down a thing.  If other things are running as well,
they will fight for the CPU, of course.

I think we're hitting psych here.  :)  Machines with a constant load
of 1 _feel_ slower than those with 0.  The actual speeds may or may
not be different, but if you ask someone who has a lav of 1 and
they'll claim the computer is so slow because of it.
