except for multi threaded apps
my suggestion is to use [CPU] if it's a CPU number (implying Nthreads == 1)
and THREADNUM if it's multithreaded..
so th column might read:


if you hit 'H' so that every thread gets a line,
then you only see the [CPUNUM] versions
so it looks as it does now. (except for the '[' and ']')
