Uh.  Naming the thing was a matter of about 2 minutes some years
ago...  Perhaps I thought of "renice daemons", meaning those that were
already running.

To my surprise the description line of my package is quite exact:
"renice running processes based on regular expressions"

It clearly says "running" and not "new" or "spawning".

Is the naming so much of an issue?  (I always confuse kernel-threads
and KDE applications because both start with k)

After a time, you may find that "having" is not so pleasing a thing,
after all, as "wanting."  It is not logical, but it is often true.
