You can get a lot of that from /proc already.

Quite frankly, I don't care about theory. Yes, in theory there's a lot you
need. In practice, I don't see any real people clamouring for it.

And discussing this at this point is useless anyway. It's not getting past
the code-freeze - if people haven't been needing it before now, there's no
excuse for saying that we need it NOW.
