That'd be great if we could do it, but as I pointed out, the available
stats do not allow us to do it very well.

I think this will create a lot of portability headaches for no real
gain.  If it were something we could just do and forget, I would not
object --- but the porting issues will create a LOT more work than
I think this can possibly be worth.  The fact that the work is
distributed and will mostly be incurred by people other than the ones
advocating the change doesn't improve matters.
