I'd scrap it... but I noticed something when doing parallel pkgsrc
bulk builds. top has a hard time reporting the activity because the
programs are so short-lived.
I wonder if we could replace the column with something which reports
cpu time accumulated by the parent from its children. That way when
we have these deep bmake topologies which run tens of thousands of
short-lived programs top would still be able to report the parent
processes which have accumulated the cpu from their children.
