    Yes Peter had already asked for this and we have it in plan.
    These are listed in the todos I listed corresponding to file based
    probes.

    - Allowing probes per-executable/per dso.
    - Allowing probes across fork.

    I have some thoughts on how to achieve these.

    However I am not sure which items I should work first
    - file based probes or on
    - automatically trigger perf uprobes on high overhead functions
    that Ingo suggested.

    I am not too clear on later so I might as well start thinking on file
    based probes.
