I think memory or speed wise this is not a problem unless you have a server running for a REALLY long time and people connecting and disconnecting continuously.

I think not keeping old stats around is more of a tidiness problem, it's not nice if you getStats() and half of the things in there are not relevant anymore.

In any case, firing an event when the final version of a stats object is produced due to detachment makes sense, solves any cpu/memory problems (whether real problems or not), and is implementation-wise not harder. Internally stats collection has to occur on a detachment event or callback - whether we do "add to cache" or "fire JavaScript event" is same complexity.
