Even if the site's designed for any resolution, I think resolution stats
could help for two reasons:

1. To help figure out what percentage of horizontal width should be
reserved for the article. There is some magic line length (400 pixels or
something) that's supposed to be easiest for most people to read. Stats
might help us hit the sweet spot on as many machines as possible.

2. Vertical space. All the empty space in issac's design is soothing at
1600x1200, but someone at 800x600 might not see anything but the logo
and navigation.

Yeah, I'd be inclined to get rid it.
