Kernel 2.6.16 idle scheduling

Forgive me if this has already been discussed.

Kernel 2.6.16 has a new scheduling priority SCHED_IDLEPRIO. Currently beagled 
attempts to run some things using "ionice" but this requires root 
priviledges. SCHED_IDLEPRIO can be set by the user.

Would it be acceptable to change beagled to use this instead of ionice when a 
2.6.16 kernel is detected? How about beagled setting itself to this priority 
when started?
