High CPU usage applet

If some process has been eating 100% CPU for hours, there should be some
kind of a notification that it's happening. Like a small icon could
appear to gnome panel and clicking it would show the process details and
allow to kill it.

Nowadays with multicore processors this 100% CPU usage can be difficult
to notice. I've had it happen several times and lasting for over a week
until I finally realized the system is running slower than normal.

(I know about the existing system monitor applet. I don't want a
distracting animation on my screen.)
