really it becomes file per cpu stream and per sample type. So a dual
socket, quad core with HT means 16 files per sample type. ie., the
number of files explodes quick.

I understand the allure for simplicity during the data collection. Has
any thought been given on management of the files in such a scenario?
User specifies a directory path instead of a file path - or both to
handle backward compatibility?
