last_data_recv only works for TCP, but can be more accurate than
watcher.  watcher snapshots the queue length at a predefined interval
(1s by default).  This means data can slip through the cracks between
intervals with watcher.

last_data_recv measures the actual time a client spent in the TCP queue
(rounded to the nearest 10ms[1]) before it was accept()-ed

In my experience, Watcher is much easier to setup and use.

I need to stick that in the rdoc/website somewhere...

Yes, but Watcher needs to be run in a single-process (but
multi-threaded) for data sharing.  Reading tcp_diag or /proc/net/unix
can be expensive, so you really don't want multiple processes
aggregating the same data.

[1] - depends on the kernel timer resolution, I think, need to verify.
