Is that with master or with tree3?
Can you explain exactly the steps to reproduce?

I'm worried that it might make the dive list too cluttered, though.
But since it's rather easy to do I could give it a try and see if we like it.

How are you planning to offer those to the user?

Right now you can fairly easily do them "manually". Collapse all trips.
Switch to the Statistics pane. Click on a trip and select it - voila, trip statistics.
Select all trips in a year - voila, yearly statistics. That was actually one of the
first things I did after implementing trips :-)

So while I like the idea, I wonder how the user interaction would work as you envision it.
