It uses 1-5% of the CPU? Wow.. On my system (CFontz serial
LCD), the LCDd server uses a constant "0.0%" of the CPU
(according to "top"), and the lcdproc client uses 0.1% - 1.0%,
depending on which stat it's gathering. (the XLoad screen
seems to take the most)


Now, if I could just figure out why mpg123 takes 10% of the cpu
while xmms and freeamp take 0.1%... :)
