Huh. A scheduler that's larger on the inside than the outside. You do realize that you'll have to return the book you copied it from to the Panopticon Library on Gallifrey?
At one point, HP produced a scheduler plugin system. If anyone has a copy of that still, there may be ideas in it worth plundering, err re-using, as no algorithm is going to be good for all cases. What you want is a hypervisor of some sort to analyze the generalized characteristics and swap scheduler if the one currently running is unsuitable for the problem at hand.
