                     18: Refactor utilities in the base system, such as netstat, top, and
                     19: vmstat, that format & display tables of statistics.
                     20: 
                     21: One possible refactoring divides each program into three:
                     22: 
                     23: * one program reads the statistics from the kernel and writes them in machine-readable form to its standard output
                     24: * a second program reads machine-readable tables from its standard input and writes them in a human-readable format to the standard output
                     25: * and a third program supervises a pipeline of the first two programs, browses and refreshes a table.
                     26: 
                     27: Several utilities will share the second and third program.
