Coreutils improvement: Recursive renice

I have got a great idea to implement in the renice program. After trying to set 
another priority to a compilation job on my box I realized that I had to type 
about ten commands, reading the ps aux list every time to look up the process 
ID:s. Now, if there would be a recursive function in it, allowing a single 
command, say “renice -r <processID>”  to change the priority of all child 
processes of that process. This would, for me be a remarkable improvement, and 
I think that there are others who think the same.

Best regards,
