Threshold of what?

This could be done relatively easily, I believe by writing a new policy.
Would you be interested in writing a statistics collecting policy?

One thing that concerns me is that as far as statistics go, this will likely
have far too coarsely grained resolution to be used, as one would a real
profiler. Due to the resolution of the underlying boost::timer. This is
instead useful only for large and extremely CPU intensive blocks of code.

Perhaps "profile" is a bad name, and instead it should be called
"progress_timer", because it is little more than a high-powered version of
the original progress_timer.
