Is JSV defined somewhere to deal with scheduling, rather than
submission?  It seems logical to have -sync available to a submission

I'm unconvinced in the absence of more realistic measurements with bash
or similar.  I think
should normally only spawn 3 external commands for each onvocation under
bash -- 2  `date's, and 1 GE `arch'.  It doesn't need
read_raw and write_raw in particular.  Changes welcome for other shells.

On the other hand, security in server-side sh jsvs (running privileged)
would bother me.

Excuse the typping -- I have a broken wrist
