I read somewhere, that I can't now find, that it would be worthwhile
to have an xload that uses getloadavg. Well, since I couldn't find it,
I did it myself: This is the whole magnificent source file get_load.c,
tested under 1.1, Sun3/60:

#include <X11/Xos.h>
#include <X11/Intrinsic.h>

void InitLoadPoint()				/* getloadavg version
void GetLoadPoint( w, closure, call_data )	/* getloadavg version
Widget	w;		/* unused */
caddr_t	closure;	/* unused */
caddr_t	call_data;	/* pointer to (double) return value */
    double averages[2];

    getloadavg(averages, 2);
    *((double *)call_data)=averages[1];	 /* five minute avg */
