Indeed there is no fundamental reason and I think it would be great to
make nofib a bit easier to run and modify.

However, I think we should be careful to maintain some degree of
compatibility. One of the nice properties of nofib is that it can be run
against a wide range of compiler versions. It would be ashame if, for
instance, Joachim's gipeda had to do different things to extract
performance metrics from logs produced by logs pre- and post-Shake

This would be great. This would allow me to drop a submodule from my own
performance monitoring tool.
