Could you please say more.

Why doesn't it work to put the time critical stuff in a separate light weight 
thread and give it higher priority than the stuff that needs lots of CPU?

Is the problem in the scheduler?  Is background junk overloading the system?
(Are people rebuilding the kernel while video converencing?)

Is it too hard to split out the logic that would go in the light weight 
thread? (get tangled on locks or such)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
