Yes, absolutely.  Just waiting to get some testing/confidence in the
new code on master, before backporting to luminous and calling the
counter naming stable.

If you get a reasonably functional dashboard up and running on the
master code, that'll probably be enough confidence for me to go ahead
and backport it.
