I think it depends whether it's CPU or I/O bound.  CPU sharing seems to
work pretty well.. I/O, however, seems to impact the system.  I have a
Win32 build server for GnuCash that runs and doesn't seem to cause
issues; I double building OpenAFS would be a major drain on system
resources.  I can always spool up one and see how it behaves.

Which Fedora version(s) would you like to see?
