But the non-threaded runtime isn't really a first class citizen, is it?
which is Nothing on the non-threaded runtime. So you can't really just "run
it unthreaded" to profile any program using that style of implementation.
Even when you don't touch it directly, the program runs very differently.

As for hb, I'd probably cry least about losing -hb but they all serve
different, and in my opinion, important needs.
