This sounds like a useful optional feature, but if you don't mind
(obviously, I'm not asking for you to do this while you're on
holiday), there's one extra thing that would be good: make this work
for a different URL, like /mountpoints/stats.xml.

We want to have the whole /admin/ space really be admin-specific
(though there have been some historical mistakes that mean that isn't
strictly true, we don't want to add more), and have other non-admin
info be exposed in different locations.
