Understood.

I still have one aspect of tracepoints that I couldn't figure out, 
though.  The original paper about tracepoints (presented by Jim and 
Michael during some conference, I think) mentions a program called 
``Introspect'' which serves as the remote agent for tracepoints.  Is
it indeed needed, and if so, where is its source?
