I think this still belongs in "user-space-land".. that's a featurism that
probably .5% of the Linux community uses and works well, in user-space.

That's the main reason /proc is there, from what I can gather.. so you can
write 'support' programs that can do exactly what 'Portato' or 'ps' does.

It's usually a user-definable configuration option already.. many people do not
want it set as default due to crampt desk-space/etc..

It should be included in 2.1, optionally, not default.
