Unfortunately I don't have the means to build this .dll on Windows yet,
so I can not make this snapshot for you.

THe reason why I changed from the old format to the new format is that
1) the old one cost too much performance and memory itself.
2) it was quite in accurate and was flawed.

I designed the profiler things in Xdebug 2 to be pretty modularized, so
it wouldn't be very hard to generate a different trace output, but it is
quite impossible to also summarize this data on the fly, as that's where
the performance hit comes from that kills the usefulness of the
profiler. I did have osme plans on making an output file like APD has
too, so that people can use the APD tool (in PHP) to generated
summarized data from the profiler outputfile. But I don't have much time
for that to do now.


PS: I would appreciate if you write to the mailinglist next time, and
please keep CC-ing it if you reply.
