What is the priority of the JavaFX thread?

I may be completely off, but in my experience Thread priorities only
have any impact on realtime or quasi-realtime OS, and they need to be
honoured by VM (which I believe is not the case for HotSpot, but I may
be wrong).

> Does JavaFX intentionally set a priority for the JavaFX thread? I would very much like to hear what the decision behind setting or not setting such a priority is.
> The reason I am asking is, on my development Mac, it seems the JavaFX thread is easily starved by other CPU load, and I was thinking if the developers of JavaFX did or did not expect application developers to manage JavaFX thread priority.
