Yes, that would be great. but i wouldn't bother with small changes in CPU
design, I see 3 options:
1) amd, cryrix, winchip, intel, and rise.
2) 386, 486, K5, K6, K7, 6x86,p5,p6,winchip.
3) am386, am486, 5x86, K5, K6, K6-2, K6-3, K6-2+,K6-3+, Athlon, AthlonUltra,
AthlonSelect, cyrix486, 6x86, 6x86L, 6x86MX,MediaGX, i386, i486, pentium,
pentiumMMX, pentiumpro, pentiumII, pentiumIII, Xeon, Celeron, Celeron(with

So i'd so with option 2, option 3 is just overwhelming us with too much
data. And celeron xeon pII and pIII are all basically pentiumpros so it
makes sense to lump them in the p6 category.
If you went with option 3 then you'd also have to have sparc and ultrasparc,
arm and strongarm, ppc601, ppc603, ppc604, ppcG3, ppcG4... and then we might
be getting a bit overwhelmed with stats.

Of course, maybe would could go with option 3 but various stats scripts that
we run on our proxies could do a few calculations and also give us figures
for 1 and 2.

I strongly advocate moving to at least option 1 or 2.
