just finished the usenix doc so that i got the picture. wow, i am quite
astonished, i must say. this seems like every developper's dream...

i worked with 5.8 and then quite lost a track. i used truss, strace,
valgrind, purify, etc for achieve part of that goal, but apparently dtrace
is lot more.

i'll certainly have a look at it, thanks!
