Painless Software Schedules: What kind of reports?

Some of you may remember that I wrote a software package for handling painless software schedules (it was by request only, so don't look for it online! :-) ).

Well, I'm in the process of finishing up a major update to it, and want to know what sorts of information you would want from something like this. I'm open to report suggestions, so be as fantasy as you want. All serious requests will be considered.

Just to let you know the basics, this is a multi-user project/feature/task tracking system based heavily on Joel's Painless Software Schedules article. It's a revision of a tool I use internally with great success. In my company, we didn't need reports, really. So I'm curious what people are interested in knowing.

Thanks in advance.

Bottlenecks. That's what I want to see.

So, places where the original estimate was nowhere near the actual time? Top 10? Top 10%? Anything over 50% larger than expected?
