well, 'fault' might not be the right word, but RSDL WILL be inherently
less interactive, something you'll notice on heavy loads. Running, as I do
now, 2 make -j4 processes at the same time on my dualcore is definitely
less fun on on RSDL compared to staircase and to a lesser extend mainline.
But the point is, I should nice them. The interactive schedulers,
staircase and the one from mainline, automatically renice processes - but
this leads to problems. RSDL doesn't do that, simple as that. So if a
process needs more CPU power than it's fair share (or less) you should use
Automatic niceing would be a good thing (eg gcc or make should nice
themselves), same with DPKG (yes, IO bound, but there are IO priorities as
well, and as far as they aren't there now, there might be in the future).
