Why not use ionice? I run mysqld, mythfrontend and mythbackend with 'ionice
-c 2' and run all the IO-heavy tasks run by MythArchive and my commflagging
wrapper script with 'ionice -c 3' so that they don't disrupt recordings or
playback.  mythfilldatabase is probably another candidate for the same
treatment, so I've just enabled that on my system.
