Dear Eero,

First off, thanks for such a wonderful device and developer community.
I have had my N800 for 5 days and have been loving every minute of
playing with it.

Can metalayer-crawler be niced so as to not impact performance of the
system? I just loaded a 2GB SD card full of music and the entire
system was unresponsive for around 5 minutes.
