It just seemed like the logical way to do it to me at the time since
it helps keep the debugger in sync with the state of the threads it's
tracking. While the name is purely cosmetic (but still annoying as
pointed out in the case of Tracker and a few others), knowing the
priority seems like valid debug information since that may come into
play in various situations where you have a concurrency bug such as a
priority inversion. In any case, reverted for now, will look into the
notification mechanism if that's what's preferred.
