    We've got processor priorities, why not memory priorities? The very
    important things (init) would get -19, the loggers maybe -2, and the
    rest of the system 0. Unimportant tasks could then be given poisitive
    numbers. These could, of course, be changed downward by root and a user
    could change his own processes upwards (just like renice).

    The memory overuse code could then just kill the highest-numbered
    memory priority.
