That's not a valid argument.  We already have several ways to export
data from the kernel to userland.  You need to demonstrate why we need a
new one, and specifically why we need the one you propose.

If your only argument is "it needs to integrate with Nagios", then,
well, if there isn't one already, I can write you a plugin that will
allow Nagios to monitor any existing or future numeric sysctl node.  It
should take about half an hour.
