This is the original direction I was thinking (sharing kernel-specific
things, like object memory usage, GC issues, threads, resource leaks, etc.)

But now that I think about it, that can probably be done with a
kernel-specific widget that you can put somewhere in your notebook just
like any other widget/cell.  If I can get some free cycles over the next
few days, I will try to prototype something up.
