Turnng it off altogether is not wise.  My box currently runs
simulations that use many processes.  To keep the machine usable
(though slow) I keep those process at nice -20.  This makes thm run,
but I can use interactive programs.  My normal process load varies
between 4 and 15, depending on how many simulations I run.  I do not
want font lock stop working in this situation.

Maybe it is reasonable to slow it proportionally to the load, starting
with load = 0.5 or 0.7.
