FWIW this doesn't seem to work out-of-box with Unicorn. Eric, do you know
offhand if it's possible to use middleware to call unicorn's proc_name? I'd love
to be able to watch what my unicorns are doing in realtime

Slightly related -- is it also possible to interrogate the current size of a
socket's backlog? (is this what Raindrops is for? It doesn't work out of box on
my mac, but I'd see about getting it working if it did)

Congrats on 1.0
