   Are other, less courteous, background programs, that run with normal 
priority, a problem when your program is set to Low?

   I have a similar background program that checks the position of the 
mouse every few seconds.  If it's moved, suggesting a human is running 
interactively, it does a "delay 2.0;"  Maybe a combination, setting the 
priority down when the mouse has moved and back up if there's been no 
mousing recently, would be good.
