Ok that is of cause a valid clam - I might have made the massage a
little short - what I was refereeing to is actually a quite old
discussion about niced cron jobs (i.e.if they should be allowed or
not) and I just wanted to know if it actually was possible now, that
was why I kept it short - I can renice the task from with in itself
(i.e by getting the pidof itself and then renice it) but setting a
level in crontab would be much nicer.
See this post for an old (inconclusive) discussion about niced cron jobs:
