Hi,

The experience is that one should avoid fiddling with process priorities.
It is very rarely done and you can probably solve the problem in another way.
In the whole Erlang/OTP distribution it is only used in a couple of places which
have with the distribution protocol to do (I have not searched the
code recently so
this is not the exact truth but almost).
