TurboBoost is a good reason for why "percent" is a bad measurement as
well. In fact, I find it more confusing. If a tool reports to the user
that NetBSD runs the CPU at 85% during a build.sh -j16, that's going to
result in surprising questions...
Consider making the "unit" of scaling an additional attribute of the
list and provide userland with:
id, data, unit
as list, get/set is using the id.
