"Seriously, I think Linus considers /proc to be a user-oriented -- and only user-oriented interface. If you're writing a program that needs information in /proc, you'd be better off using a system call to get the information you need. /proc is just a useful thingy to check out on your own. Anything that depends upon it will probably break at some inconvenient time in the future."
