Mmm I do have a change set from year or two back that adds some instance
variables to Process, then in the VM we collect milliseconds a
process has had the option to run in the process dispatch logic. That
gives exact figures on who is actually running!
I guess I could drag it out if there is interest? But it requires a
VM to be built and I believe there was little interest in offering
such a feature.
