We probably need more detailed reporting for this sort of thing.  I'll
put it on a TODO, for after FOSDEM.  I wanted to get this draft out,
so we can decide what reporting we need on a more evolutionary basis.
(Or by intelligent design if you hold by that sort of thing.)

(Don't worry, I made myself promise myself that I wouldn't pick up new
project ideas this time around.  I'll hopefully be able to take care
of this fairly quickly.)
