Is there a way to set processor affinity for HT/multiple CPU machines or is this something to look for further down the road?

Adding this is in the taskbase. From the reports I've seen setting affinity may be detrimental on HT machines, although it does help some on real multi-CPU machines.

And even better, it should be done automatically.
