Description Alex Rønne Petersen 2017-07-17 18:06:10 UTC
Right now, if you pass multiple --profile options to Mono on the command line, only the last one will be used. This doesn't make much sense since the runtime has had support for loading multiple profilers for almost a decade. We should change it so passing --profile=abc --profile=xyz will load both libmono-profiler-abc and libmono-profiler-xyz.

Don't think too many people would use this.

It's mostly for internal use anyway.
