Thanks for your suggestion!

How often do you collect your data? The current approach was chosen over 
procfs back in 2005 as we collect our statistics data every second
and performance was the main concern.

Maybe we could add an additional procfs interface, which could be used 
optionally. Though we don't have any need for that in our use case,
so I don't think we'll do the work :o)

Have you tried the other accounting module "ipt_account",
which is procfs based?
