Hi Chris,

That's effectively what it does in the scoring mechanism; it just  
gives more weight to measurements that didn't go well and it shows the  
nitty gritty of each measurement.

As always: Remember that the goal of the monitoring system is to kick  
out systems that give bad time.  Nothing else.  It's not to monitor  
the "perfect performance" of any individual system.

There are really only two important scores in the system, >= 5 and <  
5.  Nothing else matters for the objective of the monitoring system.
