Default App Request - Activity display (cpu, other)?

Hi to everyone.

I've been searching the web for an app (or even better service) what would display cpu / memory / sd actitity overlayed on top of all windows but couldn't find one.

Since Diamond has no dedicated activity leds onboard (other than those on the Dpad), I think it would be great to have some kind of display showing whether the cpu / memory / sd are used/accessed.
I have come with some possible "flavours":

1) Animated windows flag. Each part of the windows flag would animate to show activity. eg
Red part - CPU activity
Blue part - memory / Sd activity
Green part - wifi data transmition
Yellow part - Phone modem (3g, hsdpa, gprs, gsm) activity

2) An icon sitting near the energy icon (among others) changing color or a color bar as above displaying activity.

3) Super duper stuff! (though maybe not possible). Having each of the four leds in the Dpad display different activity. eg
Left led - CPU
Top - Memory
Right - Wifi
Bottom - Phone Data

Could even one of the above become reality? I think it would be awesome to have an app like this.

Thanx in advance for your response.

It's fine to do that on a pc, but on a phone that doesnt exactly have unlimited resources it'll increase your CPU usage and decrease your battery light

There are today plugins you can get to show your memory usage
