You won't crunch harder overnight be chaning the priority unless you are
running something else overnight as well.  The priority is used ONLY where
two or more processes (at different priorities) want to run to decide
which process gets more CPU time.  If you have one process it makes no
difference what priority you give it, the entire cpu (minus OS overhead)
will be avaibal to it.
