I've considered adding this to the perl script that I use to produce proxy
stats.  I've got some machines that I can't install my normal network
monitoring software on.  But since I run rc5 on them I have noticed when
they died!  rc5 is useful.  :-)  But it would be nice if the stats program
would notice if the machine hasn't checked in at the interval that it
normally would plus 10% or so.  Of course, with a proxy I also keep a very
low output buffer on the machines so they check in pretty often.

                    load average: 1.00, 1.00, 1.00
