(unifying all I/O and limiting background processes based on that total is

amount of work involved, but the code itself doesn't need to be clever or
too intrusive. Unifying all the memory settings would require being both
clever and intrusive, and I doubt you'll find anybody who could pull it
off who isn't already overtasked with more important improvements for the
