    It would not be good to merge a large kernel feature which kernel
    developers and testers cannot test, and regression test.

    If testing utrace against its main application requires installation of a
    complete enterprise distro from a distro which the particular developer
    might not prefer to use then that's quite a problem.

    So it is desirable for this reason (and, I suspect, for other reasons) that
    systemtap (or a part thereof) be dragged out in some standalone form which
    is usable by random mortals.

    IOW: I agree.
