 That doesn't sound like good design.

But I don't have the ability to resolve a conflict by assigning it to an
idle tuner.  And I shouldn't, so I don't disagree with that decision.
That the scheduler doesn't do that, is IMHO, a bug.

But to not even fall back to using another available tuner?  Is that
really within the design consideration?

Why should I need to?  There are IDLE TUNERS!

Until next time when the +1 yields a different, non-desirable schedule.
