Think about it hard: since you can do other things in Emacs in the mean
time, it's already running "in the background".  If your G4 becomes
basically unusable, the best guess is that the conversion process uses up
all disk and memory resources, in which case there's not much you can do:
even lowering its CPU-priority will not buy you much responsiveness.
