cool idea - i have just tried this and it rocks - you can easily see the
'nature' of CPU time distribution just via visual feedback. (Is there
any easy way to start up 12 glxgears fully aligned, or does one always
have to mouse around to get them into proper position?)

btw., i am using another method to quickly judge X's behavior: i started
the 'snowflakes' plugin in Beryl on Fedora 7, which puts a nice smooth
opengl-rendered snow fall on the desktop background. That gives me an
idea about how well X is scheduling under various workloads, without
having to instrument it explicitly.
