CLI Magic: Use ANSI escape sequences to display a clock in your terminal

Pretty nice thing. But it's useful only if your terminal is idle most of the time and you're typing commands from time to time.
Type 'find /' and you will see 'find' output and no time... For a terminal running within X, I would like to see the time, uptime,
load average, etc. in the window title instead (if the window manager decorates the windows in the way enough to do so).
