Eventually I'll rename ionice to ioprio; it should make more sense to

commit bit feels like it, just go ahead and do the rename :)

I'm still of the opinion that having a tool that resembles "idprio" and "rtprio" that closely having the exact opposite semantics is a really bad idea. People *will* forget which is what, and mess it up, especially users that are new to the whole Unix thing.

(I would still prefer that it works exactly as "nice" with no surprises, negative levels and all, but a different name would hopefully serve to remind users that the two really are different.)
