	Great idea, Tommy.

	I quickly checked on a 0.16 setup. The "load average"
and Mem/Swap lines wrappped of the side of the GUI for me
(could be the theme? G.A.N.T with default font
  sizes and 12/16/25 for small/med/big QT font,
  but I also tried Titivillus and blue - same result)

	Also, your patch will not compile on BSD based systems
or Mac OS X. Here is a slightly larger patch that fixes that,
and shortens the text a little to fit in.

	Note that I have not implemented BSD code for getting
Physical or Virtual memory stats. After trawling for code,
I was sorely tempted to just put a few system("vm_stat")
calls in - it still might be the best way to go?
