For every problem there is an answer that is easy, simple and wrong.  
Nice is far too crude a tool for managing resource allocation issues  
between competing CPU-bound processes... the automatic priority  
juggling already in the UNIX or Linux kernel does a better job of  
that than you can by manual intervention. But even if that was likely  
to work here, I have learned the hard way that technical fixes to  
social and political problems, and problems in a product offering or  
business model, do not work worth a damn. This is not really a  
technical issue, it's a matter of establishing a business case at LL  
and so it's really outside the scope of this list.
