I don't really use priorities at all, since I'm using org-mode to do
GTD.  If something has to be done today, then that's a deadline, not a
priority.  If I don't need or want to get something done /in the next
week/, it probably shouldn't be crowding up my todo-lists at all, and
making it harder for me to find things I should be doing; it should be
on my someday/maybe list.
