That sounds interesting. How are you going to do this?
Under BeOS, BTW you can easily read out the frequency of CPU, but that 
would probably help you only if you knew how fast the CPU in question 
is, right?
At least, one could remember the CPU model, and its speed, so that you 
would only need to recalibrate if the model has changed.

(And some day, I promise, I will do the GUI integration :-))
