* This interface exposes the general notion of a scheduled object with a
* integral priority value. Following UNIX conventions, smaller (and possibly
* negative) values have higher priority.
* This interface does not strictly define what happens when the priority of an
* object is changed. An implementation of this interface is free to define
* the side-effects of changing the priority of an object. In some cases,
* changing the priority of an object may be disallowed (resulting in an
* exception being thrown) or may simply be ignored.

* This attribute may be modified to change the priority of this object. The
* implementation of this interface is free to truncate a given priority
* value to whatever limits are appropriate. Typically, this attribute is
* initialized to PRIORITY_NORMAL, but implementations may choose to assign a
* different initial value.

* This method adjusts the priority attribute by a given delta. It helps
* reduce the amount of coding required to increment or decrement the value
* of the priority attribute.
