Kenny Goer's Feature Request

The Profiler/instruments that apple ships with the iOS SDK is extremely difficult to use, especially with MT, where it's difficult to know what is user code, what isn't. We're going to be shipping our own tool very soon called HeapShot, which will go a long ways to covering some of this pain, but even with that we need to really look at the UX on this and think hard on a lot of the experience here. Additionally, heapshot won't really cover a lot of the use cases that a profiler does cover, so we're going to be looking at a longer term solution here.
