Or if we go the "make a system stats lib that doesn't suck" route we could 
just use that.  i.e. ksysguard uses libstat, the applets use libstat, GNOME 
uses libstat, etc.

As it stands GNOME can't depend on ksysguardd, as it's not even released 

No one is saying ksysguard should go, just that it's probably overengineered 
for what it does. :)
