I understand, the reason I'm not using the provided scripts is because I'd 
like to have them obey the directories used by the build system/rpm. I 
could rewrite them, but it's easier to maintain if it is included.

Exactly, I guess the infrastructure should have a possibility to have 
them both mutual exclusive. Maybe food for thought in a RH bugzilla entry ?

Yes, that's a good idea. If --nice 5 is a good default, why isn't it 
implied ?

The next release will have the mentioned recommendations. Thank you very
