    cool! I like this even more than i liked your original staircase
    scheduler from 2 years ago :) Lets try what we did back then: put it
    into -mm and see what breaks (if anything). But in general, it is
    becoming increasingly clear that the interactivity estimator is a more
    fragile concept than the built-in quota mechanism of the staircase
    scheduler, so if it works in practice i'm quite in favor of it, even if
    it regresses /some/ workloads.
