I've been toying with a few stats ideas in my head and wanted some feedback
on them. Please note that the odds of implementation either of these is
pretty slim, and if we do decide to implement, it's gonna be quite some
time before it happens. In other words, don't hold your breath. :)

1) CPU time
I'm sure some of you have noticed that SETI at home reports CPU time used. Is
this an interesting stat for people? Also, would you like to see what your
total CPU time is? Note that we probably wouldn't have the client try to
figure this out for each block, rather, we'd benchmark each version of the
client on each architecture/CPU. Unless the coders tell me it'd be easy to
measure CPU time per block :)

2) Individual OS/Version info
We used to (and probably will again) tabulate OS/version info for the
project as a whole. Would you be interested in seeing these kind of stats
for your email?

Please note that adding either of these features could add quite some time
to the nightly statsrun.
