check_procs also has a "-k" option to ignore kernel threads that we should consider using. This would leave us less sensitive to kernel changes, although we would also be more exposed to kernel bugs that spawn lots of threads. But that seems like optimizing for the wrong case, and being able to tune more straightforwardly for the actual userspace workload would be an improvement.
