Yeah. I thought now would be a good time to change since you're messing 
with the code anyway.

I'd be happy with something like "system process" that carries the 
meaning of something that's internal and important. But "system process" 
makes me think of the operating system.

Non-backend process would be a nice contrast to normal backend 
processes, but a negated word like that is awkward.

Internal process?
