Don't discard the first number so quickly.
For example, say we use a timeout mechanism for the daemon running
inside namespaces to avoid using too much memory with a daemon in
every namespace. That means we'll pay the startup cost repeatedly but
in a way that amortizes it down.
Even if it is really a one time cost, then if you collect enough
samples then the outlier won't have much affect on the mean anyway.
I'd say keep it in there.
