reniced /(g(cc|++)|c(c|++))/ 15

or whatever the syntax is. I often wanted to have such a feature on
public machines.

Of course, the problem is that gcc spawns many processes, and if
reniced only takes a little while to react to a new gcc process, the
children won't be reniced.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
