The existing 'Average Trade Length' metric is fine but it would be doubly useful to be able to see the average time spent in both winning and losing trades separately. This would help determine whether winners are being properly pressed and losers unnecessarily held on to. This kind of data is commonly sought in futures trading.

Good idea.

Tho not presented as exact average numbers, one can see the holding times of winners / losers charted on the Duration tab of 'Advanced' statistics. Pretty visual thing.
Surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you and who have no agenda for your reform.
