If I can do this with adding modifiers at the end of the location string, it would work well.

It's quite good -- I use it in conjunction with Mathematica so that the
What's nice is because it remembers the priority for a given process, if you start multiple instances (as Mathematica does when it runs many kernels in parallel) they all start with the same priority.
So if you're doing development work in Visual Studio and set
