Mac Process Renicer GUI

Yeah, yeah… there are a lot of computer-related posts here lately. So sue me. I’m really bothered that there doesn’t seem to be any way to change process priorities that’s part of the Mac OS X GUI, though: I frequently have to drop down to the command line to give my video player the highest possible priority, and to drop the priority of my peer-to-peer clients and suchlike. A process renicer GUI shouldn’t be difficult at all to write, and is a darned useful thing to have around.

Update: Process Wizard does this, sits unobtrusively in the menu bar, and is even free. (I found this program via a page of super OS X menubar items while I was looking for something else.)
