So IIUC, normal users would still be free of choosing their clamp values
as long as they choose one in the list of pre-allocated ones ? Is that
correct ?

If yes, that would still let normal users make they tasks look bigger no ?
They could just choose the clamp group with the highest min_clamp or
something. Isn't this a problem too ? I mean, if that can be abused easily,
I'm pretty sure people _will_ abuse it ...

Or maybe I misunderstood something ?

Thanks,
Quentin
