So cost-centre stacks are not produced for the original program written
by the user, but for the intermediate program after optimisation. I
understand that you want to profile the optimised version, but the fact
that your profile does not quite match your program can be confusing.
For debugging, however, I think that it is clear that you want your
debugging information (cost centre stacks) to match your program, even
if it costs you some performance.
