The opinion on this one started out with everyone saying "Yeah,
this is dumb, and should have changed". Now that the change appears
in a mergable patch, the opinion seems to have swung the other way.

I'm seriously rethinking this change, as no matter what we do,
we're going to make some people unhappy, so changing the status quo
seems ultimately pointless.

Eh? I thought he was agreeing with niced processes running full speed but that
he misunderstood that that was the new default. Oh well I should have just
shut up.


Hi Con,

looks as if I did misunderstand the default. In the last week I've seen occasional comments on this from both sides of the debate, so I read the description and got it wrong.

Now, if you gentlement will excuse me, I'll just wipe this egg off my face.
