Ya, there is exactly one place in the VM where the processor switch happens. In the past I tinkered with it to add some slots to Process to track wall clock time by process.
At that time was I was thinking gee we could count bytes allocated and other things like socket usage etc, thus providing a bit more process consumption statistical data for
Squeak threads ala unix processes.

Please maintain an option that keeps process context switches as fast as possible.  I'm interested in Erlang style architectures and how they might be implemented in Smalltalk.  Hydra+Cog+Newspeak would make a really nice platform for Erlang-style applications.
