[Bf-committers] proposal: python interface for object statistics ...

So i took another round on this and here is my idea
after i have seen Sean's contribution.

What about having 3 statistic sets for Scene, Object and Mesh.

In Object mode the default is the Scene statistic.
In edit mode the default is the Mesh statistic.

Here are 3 images how it may look:

Scene: http://pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=28055
Object: http://pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=28056
mesh: http://www.pasteall.org/pic/show.php?id=28057

The statistics sets can be selected at any time.
Such everybody could adjust them to their own needs.

Would that be an approach, doable, understandable,  appreciated ?
