What was the motivation for re-writing in C?

I've done some hacking on the old version here, and so I realise that
such a big shell script was getting a little out of hand, but surely
perl or python is a better option for this application?

If it's going to stay in C maybe we could integrate profiling support
from /proc/profile, bypassing readprofile? One of the guys here
recently wanted to get profiling information from his program, and it
would have been really good to have a library that could reset, start,
pause and return in some format the profiling data. If you think your
users might be interested in profile outputs I can write something
maybe we can both use.
