  Under os/2 there's no "offical" way of changing the priority. If you
have a program like CAD Commander, it does let you change priorities on
the fly, while the program is running. The default is priority class IDLE
and level 0.

  No personal proxies are planned at this time. You can of course just
keep the completed keys on disk and send them when your connected.

  Nope, I'm planning it for the PM client thou. Right now it will keep
crunching until all the buffered keys are done and then flush.
