Can I also suggest we include the ability to select real priority levels
in the scheduling scheme? I'd like to be able to run the client at low
priority during 9-5.30 and high priority outside those times - and maybe
even so-called 'real-time' between 0100 and 0800.
(specifically on Windoze-NT clients, where it currently does not work).
