Safe data gathering nonwithstanding, it would be interesting if there
were actually diagnostic or other information that became salient when
rendered in an auditory modality: higher fraction of highly
interactive (e.g. IRC) traffic?, sudden DDoS underway?, why does it
sound different when Europe wakes up than when California wakes up?,
does that stop happening if a botnet uses Tor for C&C?, and does
whiteness (pinkness?) of noise reflect a decent metric for
traffic-security, etc.
