I wanted my pinephone to have an on-screen indicator of when it was doing filesystem access, so I can see if it's busy or just ignoring me.

I haven't yet found a way to do that (at least, without polling /proc/diskstats, but "polling" and "battery life" are often not good bedfellows), but I have distracted myself into writing a #fennel status bar program a la i3status or waybar so at least when I figure it out I'll have somewhere to display it
