Here's a patch for the cpu-module to make it play with the shelf.
I've changed the theme to look like the net and mem modules, the pngs
showing the meters can be downloaded here:
(renamed images from from net-module).

personally I don't like bars to display data, especially if they
represent values in steps of ten percents.
I would like very much if it would be possible at least to choose
between a bar-based and a graph-based layout :)

aye.. a gage like cpu load is much more meaningful in a graph than a
I would prefer to see net and cpu activity as graphs instead of bars.
the same applies to memory usage, but that's not so critical. As a
programmer, I test things a lot, including how much cpu, memory, and
network certain software uses. With only a bar, that means I have to
stare at the bar constantly while doing things to see what effect these
things I am doing have. With a graph, I can concentrate on doing
stuff, then check the results later. The graph also gives more
context, by laying the three on top of each other I can track changes
between the three and see if a spike in one is related to a spike in
another. That's also why I like to stretch these graphs all across the
screen and set them to one second updates, that gives me several
minutes worth of data, and I can track quick spikes.
At the moment only cpu offers a graph, I have to use some other tool to
graph network and memory usage.
