I can get my total CPU time from 'top', but I _would_ be interested in 
a statistic such as how many 'Pentium equivalent' machines I'm running.

Yes.  I'd be interested in 'uname -a' info, but not interested in what 
version of the client I'm running.

Probably the single biggest reason to not add them.  Would it be 
practical to run these 'extra' stats off weekly, keeping the block 
count stats like what we have now going daily?
