This is about daemons that are not designed to be configured in that
way.  The "easiest" solution was to just add a line to the /etc/init.d

A better way would be to add a nice configuration value to either
every daemon (lots of work upstream) or at least to the init scripts
(still lots of work, but start-stop-daemon already has an --nicelevel

But I did not want to run wild and add wishlist bugs against every
package, so I wrote reniced instead.


And that one shall come to you garbed in raiment of

our ties with the lost land.             (Nausicaä)
