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.
