How does priority work? What units does it cost?

We haven't had to activate the priority system yet because there has been ample amount of people wanting to help with rendering.
The idea, however, is that as rendering resources get scarce you have to pay more (in spendable credit, which you get from rendering) to get your sessions rendered faster than other sessions in the queue. There may also be a start-up fee (again in spendable credit) to start new sessions when the farm is very busy.
