While `echo rm * | batch` might seem to work, it might still raise the load of the system since `rm` will be _started_ when the load is low, but run for a long time. My proposed command executes a new `rm` execution once every minute when the load is small.
Obviously, load could also be lower using `ionice`, but I still think this is a useful example for sequential batch jobs.
