Actually, I wonder if this really warrants a package on its own; AFAICS
it just adds some sugar and error checking to something as basic as 

,----[ reniced.sh ]
| #!/bin/bash
| grep -v '^#' "${1:-$HOME/.reniced" | 
| while read prio regex; do 
|     renice $prio $(pgrep "$regex")
| done

... which is something I'd expect to find in ~/bin, but not as the
single functionality of a Debian package.
