Ok, it seems to be important which "nice" we are talking about.

I did a quick test and it looks like "/usr/bin/nice -20" does indeed
lower the priority, while the csh/tcsh builtins raise it. sh/ksh don't
seem to have "nice" builtins, and I don't have bash or any other shell
installed to try there.
