I don't see a need for "nice" on brutus.  The purpose of that machine is 
to run Gump.  If performance becomes a problem, we can ask for help to 
get the machine to take advantage of it's second CPU and additional memory.

When hermes goes into production, we may lose it for Gump purposes. 
Meanwhile, nice there might be a good idea.

Having gump first sniff to see if it is current running and quickly exit 
if so might be a good idea.  Perhaps using some code like this:
