Yet another agenda madness I have no clue about.

`org-agenda-get-scheduled' sets the priority as

'priority (if habitp (org-habit-get-priority habitp)
                              (+ 99 diff (org-get-priority item)))

where diff is the number of overdue days for a given entry.


`org-agenda-get-deadlines' has

                  ;; Adjust priority to today reminders about deadlines.
                  ;; Overdue deadlines get the highest priority
                  ;; increase, then imminent deadlines and eventually
                  ;; more distant deadlines.
                  (let ((adjust (if today? (- diff) 0)))
                    (+ adjust (org-get-priority item)))

`org-agenda-get-todos' has

              priority (1+ (org-get-priority txt)))

All these dates back to the initial Org release.

Changing them will likely break existing sorting.

To fix this, we should carefully check what will happen if we set the
agenda priority to be the actual user-defined priority. And then fix the
sorting back somehow.
