Job Priority in Workflows Merged
Seems like lots of people would like this feature -- see https://discuss.circleci.com/t/job-priority-in-workflows/16893/9 for example. Adding a simple option that would let us make some workflow jobs higher-priority than others could really help us tune our CI setup to finish faster.
