My goals for the 3.12 cycle (as we're getting close to the 3.9 freeze,
for the next cycle) are to review the buglist of the module, and extend
to provide library support for various gnome-system-monitor enhancement
requests, but in the meantime keep it simple and fast enough to back the
upcoming Usage application.

Tbh, I think it would be good to start out by reevaluating the
rationale for this library. Do we really need it anymore ? What data
does g-s-m get from it ?

For storage-related data, gio has probably
encroached into the territory already.

You might be right on that, I will check what GIO can do.

For other data, libgtop is
mostly a thin wrapper of /proc, iirc.

Thas is true for linux systems, but libgtop also supports some BSDs, and
other systems, which don't seem to have a procfs

Before we take this fact into consideration here, perhaps we should
first find out if a modern GNOME system actually work on BSD. We

It does. I am actually running a full GNOME 3.8.3 installation on OpenBSD.
And part of my job is to deploy such combo on hundreds of machines.
