   The way this (and perhaps also debugging features) could work is this:
   On compilation all code fields are remembered somewhere (using a
   special hook like etags). If the user now decides to profile part of
   the code, the corresponding code fields are replaced by fields
   pointing to code that performs the measurement (or whatever else is
   intended).
