I didn't know kde had one.  I am using the plugin for gkrellm, and that 
continued to work well after I upgraded from f8 to f10 here.  So you might 
want to look into that.  It cycles through the data in a one line display, or 
in kde-4.2 hovering the mouse over it pops up the full report from the local 
airport, in my case about 18 miles away.

Excellent observation, too bad they haven't studied it.
