Yes, great idea.  I'll do that.

Normally, I don't mind including additional stats.  It makes it easier
for the users in the end and they don't have to edit any files to get
them automatically.

However, given that the latest patch requires includes
orca_p_vmstat_class.se, then there could be an issue.

I think the solution is to have start_orcallator define something like
ORCALLATOR_INCLUDE_P_VMSTAT and have in orcallator.se this:

#include <orca_p_vmstat_class.se>

so that people can use it even if they do not install the lib/SE/XXX
