    It's quite possible (about a 3% chance) that the PID of the
    hog (that we _want_ to get killed) is in the <1000 range...

    Also, "simply reverse-ordering chronologically" doesn't work
    if it means killing two dozen innocent processes before we
    get to the memory hog.

    Killing processes when we're out of memory is _bad_ (but
    unavoidable) so we'd better make sure that we kill the hog
    and keep all other processes alive...

    regards,

    Rik
