That only Karim's experience is being in question here?

Well, I'm first to admit that LTT needs improvement, but that has never
been the point.

We need to get to some kind of agreement what level of tracing Linux
should support in general, preferably something that is easy to
integrate and usable by everyone. Especially the latter means that there
is not one true solution, so we need to figure out what kind of common
infrastructure can be implemented, from which all of them can benefit.

At this point you've been rather uncompromising contrary to every single
argument from either side.

bye, Roman
