This one would be a very useful feature especially considering I've seen FZ server use up to 12% CPU on high load. Because the server runs in the background it's always activated. So I don't want it arbitrarily slowing down my computer when I'm doing something intensive. Also I know there are those people out there who would like to have it the other way around and use their server at high prio on dedicated machines.
I don't know what language FZ is written in but in VB it's dead easy to implement such a feature with SetPriorityClass. All itwould need is an entry to read and write to in the .ini advertising the feature, an option with the priority somewhere in the UI, (Realtime, AboveNormal, Normal, BelowNormal, and Low) and a bit of code that would apply the setting at two points - on startup and on saving settings. Sounds like fifteen minutes of work.
