    It's not all that tricky. The ->fair_key computations are already
    parametrized on load weights. The "task weights" here are just what
    Linux calls "load weight," so we're largely done once task weights
    are calculated.

    The tricky part (if any) is essentially what you've already got nailed
    down, that is, creating and manipulating the accounting objects for the
    task groups or whatever you're calling them.
