thanks for your answer.
I feel that especially for TProfile it would make sense to have this option,
in my case for example, I plot certain measured values over time,  so a mean 
of the y-axis is the only thing that is of interest for me.
How about making the statistics of the y-axis to the default source for the 
statistics display, whenever the user has switched on the time display for 
the x-axis? In this case the statistics of the time-axis should only be of 
interest in the rarest cases, wouldn't you think so?
