That's actually an interesting (and not standard) idea.  Even moreso
because I'm writing a RescueTime-like time-tracking tool for Emacs,
working (unlike Org's clocking) without manual intervention - recording
the state of computer (i.e., current idle time, active X window, active
Emacs buffer name and mode) at regular (or not) intervals and making
reports.  I did not include any network-related info, but this would be
easy to add.  Thanks, I'll definitely think about it!
