Which is exactly why I propose we use it.  :)  I'll just code the damned
thing this weekend I think.  :)  Last time there was a huge discussion
about "changing the default autonice time and value" it went on for
weeks...  I just coded it in an hour, and since it's in the tree now I
have heard no complaints.

Sometimes it's just faster to code it.  :)
