Indeed.
----------------------------------------
import win32api, win32process

win32process.SetPriorityClass(win32api.GetCurrentProcess(),
win32process.BELOW_NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS)

... Invoke the compression portion of the program ...

win32process.SetPriorityClass(win32api.GetCurrentProcess(),
win32process.NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS)
----------------------------------------


win32all build 159 and earlier are missing the constant
win32process.BELOW_NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS; that can be fixed with:
----------------------------------------
win32process.BELOW_NORMAL_PRIORITY_CLASS = 16384
----------------------------------------
