This library seems decent and its platform support is good. I notice that
the CPU information functions don't seem to allow you to get information
about each CPU independently.

But what I'm curious about is whether such library should be used directly

I would say it should be wrapped in a KDE API then we could replace the
backend with another one if we need to later. This would also mean that the
API would be properly integrated with our documentation etc.
