- Ah, you are asking about bugs, rather than whether or not it exists.

Well, I was asking if there was another program that was
supposed to provide similar functionality. (fstat(1) and
pstat(1) might be other choices in the light of day, but they
don't provide anything additional either.)

Since the answer is "no", I'll dig into implementing it, and
(hopefully) present the needed patches on tech-userlevel later.
