We're interested, as Matt said, in what folks are using.  We're ramping 
up a new throughput cluster on our campus that'll be multi-disciplinary, 
and we have several groups of stakeholders.  We want to report various 
statistics, such  as number of jobs, average number of nodes, average 
number of cores, average runtime, etc., plus distributions thereof.  And 
anything else that's pointed out as "interesting".
