That idea, reporting the reciprocal has been around for some time, I think I first heard it from Jonathan Morton. But this is the first implementation....

Now personally I tend to think about 'latency' as sort of a budget, and then accounting where this budget is spent is easier with durations than periods. But I understand the attraction of 'bigger is better' numbers as well. Though most people also know smaller is better number, like product prices or taxes owed, but I digress.

The goresponsiveness code is quite readable and might give a convenient starting point for some quick and dirty exploration...
