First of all I'll state, I (just some FreeBSD user) am neutral on this
as well -- which means, I wouldn't complain if it gets commited.  :)  
There's just one thing nagging me:

I still can't get past the fact that this can all be done very simply
and much better with available tools.  I see this option similar to,
for example, "why not have an option to print only the 'Used' column."  
If this were to be commited, there would be no net gain.  (No net
loss, either.)

Naturally, "no reason not to put it in" is most certainly *not* a
reason to put it in.  I would like to hear some to sway me one way or
the other.

df /disk1 /disk2 | \
  awk '/^\// {t+=$2;u+=$3;} END { print "Total:", t,u,t-u,u*100/t; }'

...and "slaping 'df -c' into a pie chart" usually intails running it
through some parser like this, anyway... or?
