    Profiling, monitoring, and control (workload management).

    Sounds like something that at the moment, most users and most
    applications will not use, most of the time.

    I won't question the usefulness of the statistics to some
    applications, but at the moment is it is reasonable to add this
    overhead for everyone, or even for all tasks? Adding a bit more
    work for those that want the stats won't be too bad.

    Thanks,
    Nick
