Looking at "Performance Reports":

* Put thousands separators in numbers to make them readable.  (Even for India, use 3-digit clumps at least for microsecond/nanosecond numbers.)
* Switch to K/M/... suffix when the number won't fit in the allowed space.  (The current formatting is _useless_:  "123456...".)
* When clicking on a heading, sort DESC _first_ -- after all, the biggies are usually what someone is looking for.
* Wrap headings into 2 lines if not enough space.
* If practical, interrogate display size and provide more space for first column (file/query/etc)
* "Pivot" 'Schema Object Overview' table on ObjectType
* In 'Unused Indexes', state datetime when collection started.

How to repeat:
Bring up Workbench's "Performance Reports"
