Well, its ASCII data from the start with ;) Anyway, reading proc filesystems 
is very slow, and every access has to be reduced. However, I don't think that 
this is the limiting factor, and the preliminary numbers of Julian pointed 
out that when you spend 70% of your time in processEvents, then the data 
marshalling is not your issue.
