tmux examples

Jan Stary
faq7.html#tmux makes the example of

  set -g status-right '#(sysctl vm.loadavg)'

which "puts the current load average on the right side".
_current_ here means the load averages in the moment
the tmux session was started; these numbers stay the
same throughout the life of the session, while the load
averages of course change.

I think it would make a better example with

  set -g status-interval 5
       
or similar added to the configuration.
