Thanks; I appreciate your comments. That's what's currently in place at the
moment, and the lower the number of requeues the less it starves...
Unfortunately, this also means that the shorter it takes a real interactive
task to expire as well. This is the theme I'm currently working on though, as
the starver gets rescheduled ahead of anything else and I've developed a way
of letting other tasks sneak in ahead if it starts doing that. It needs more
tuning but seems to work so far.
