Lol I'm sure not.

Yes I've my reasons :p One is that the new sswriter will be more efficient and
faster. Each element will have its intervall of time to be checked (groups of
elements will be possible) and data stored by the daemon. For example the time
(with seconds) needs to be update more frequently than the battery charge. A
reason for the client/server features is I want that sswriter monitor all my
computers and send data to my web site. But the lamda user will be able to
ignore these features. In brief... I've my scenarios :p
