I would think the ultimate for this would be to be able to feed profiling 
information into the compiler.  No messy pragmas all over the code and I would 
guess there would be other benefits as well (e.g., inlining decisions).

Of course it's easy to sit back and suggest things like this -- but I would 
image quite a whole other kettle of fish to build them.  : )
