Ah, so when do we get per jail user/nice/system/load CPU stats in 
top/vmstat et. al.?  ;-)

The question is how expensive is it. Having a global system /
interrupt / idle counter and a per-jail user / nice counter should
be easy to implement.
While Paul's suggestion was obviously in jest, I'd have to say that it's 
probably *not* a good idea to implement it, regardless of the expense, 
unless it can be demonstrated that this can somehow reveal privileged 
information.  This would defeat programs (e.g., sendmail) which attempt 
to back off when system load gets too high.
