Of course it is!  The length of the run queue (sampled poorly, to be
sure) is still relevant.  You just need to factor in your number of
cores and how badly you're in wait state as well.

could do this already. Of course, if everything were
object-oriented I'd have a bushy moustache and be
wearing flares, which would suck." -- Sean Neakums
