Yes this feature has been pending since 2.0... Paul wrote the Quick
Start Guide on the assumption that we'd get this feature back in 2.x
in quick time, but alas been sweeeept away with work so haven't got to
it yet, even one year on.

Yes this submission did add polygon stats and other useful stats
output, but alas it required lots of intrusive changes to the core OSG
that weren't appropriate for the level and type of functionality
provided.  It should be possible to add this type of functionality
much less intrusively - i.e. at the viewer level only, but as with
many would be nice to have features that I could implement given the
time.... it'll have to wait, or for someone else to step in a code it.
