You have to be root to do that. If you do, just make sure you trust me
not to put any exploits into the code. ;)
But on a serious note, if you do this, it will also prevent anything
else on your box from running well -- particularly mythbackend. That's
a bad thing if you have a software encoder.
And on that note, nuvexport has a --nice commandline option just for
this kind of thing.
