ZEO servers can optionally listen on a separate monitor port.

If you telnet to the monitor port, you get a dump of server statistics.

The statistics are useful, but I don't really see why this should be
a dedicated server.  IMO, it would be just as useful to have a server
method to be called from a ZEO client to get server statistics as a
Python dictionary.

Managing yet another port is a pain.

The implementation is pain to maintain.

Does anyone use the monitor server? Would anyone object
if it went away, to be replaced by a server method on the standard
ZEO protocol?
