    It's not that I personally want to profile a particular python
    program. I'm interested in the more general problem of extracting more
    information from profiled user space programs than just stack traces.


    - What is going on inside QEMU?

    - Which client is the X server servicing?

    - What parts of a python/shell/scheme/javascript program is
    taking the most CPU time?

    I don't think the oprofile JIT interface solves any of these
    problems. (In fact, I don't see why the JIT problem is even hard. The
    JIT compiler can just generate a little ELF file with symbols in it,
    and the profiler can pick it up through the mmap events that you get
    through the perf interface).

    I am bringing this up because I want to extend sysprof to be more
