Change default priority values

Priority dialog in ksysguard
The "prelink" program is launched daily by "cron". When "prelink" is running, I notice that my old computer works slower.
If I open "ksysguard", search for "prelink", right-click on "prelink" row, and select "Set priority...", I get a dialog window (see it in the attached image) that shows the following things:
( ) Batch
( ) Round robin
( ) FIFO
Priority: Low (19)
( ) Idle
( ) Best effort
( ) Real time
Priority: Low (7)
I think that "prelink" should run by default with a "Batch" value in the "CPU Scheduler" (instead of current "Normal" value), since the description of "Batch" value is:
For CPU-intensive non-interactive processes.
And probably "prelink" should also run by default with an "Idle" value in the "I/O Scheduler" (instead of current "Normal" value), since the description of "Batch" value is:
Process can only use the hard disk when no other process has
used it very recently.
I think that, by changing both default values, "prelink" will not affect other programs running on the computer. Would it be easy to change?
