Anyone needing this collector knows what diamond is already. ;)

But I guess I could have added a bit of context for those NOT in the 
know. And that is the correct project. It used to belong to BrighCove 
but they gave it up a while ago.

I have to admit, it is a great metrics collection suit. Very lite-
weight, fast and extensible.

There isn't a lot to explain but will see if I can clear some time to 
write a short something about it. Will also be submitting it for 
inclusion in the package as soon as I feel there are no major issues 
(hence the call for testers).
