That looks nicer indeed.

> 2) Plugin support

One thing that doesn't seem implemented yet is to choose another OS core
plugin, e.g. to use x86 detection on Linux instead of /proc or /sys
detection. This will be the same kind of thing with likwid / servet
-based OS core plugins. I have gotten the x86 detection code to get
enabled with the attached code, which should be reproducable with other
OSes which support CPU binding. How does it look like?
