Comment(by garycmartin):

 As a general design related comment, I see the CPU status indicators value
 for a certain type of user/tester/qa on XO hardware, but worry about
 having it added to the Sugar UI permanently for all our target users. I do
 not see such features added to other OS/platforms except optionaly for
 when performing administration and testing tasks. The device icon is
 'cute' but does increase the UI complexity/clutter and very much reminds
 me of the start of menu extras (OSX) and task bar extras (Windows) feature
 creep wars, setting a trend for bolting on extras, rather than trying to
 fix the underlying issue (in this case kernel OOM behaviour, an unclear
 activity multitasking UI).
