[xdebug-general] Suggestion for clarification of website documentation

Hey all,
I'm fairly new to xdebug, but have been using it for a few weeks. Today, I
tried getting profiling working on OS X 10.5.7 using XAMPP. I spent a few
hours trying to figure out the following problem:

Even though I had set xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger to 1, each time I
loaded a page a log file was written. Eventually, I found a single blog post
that mentioned that you have to have xdebug.profiler_enable set to 0 to use
the trigger. While this definitely makes sense in retrospect, I feel like
it's not obvious... my thinking was that, of course you have to have the
whole thing enabled for ANYTHING to work.

My suggestion: on the profiler docs page (http://xdebug.org/docs/profiler),
I think it would be very beneficial to mention this in the
xdebug.profiler_enable_trigger section. Just something simple like,
"xdebug.profiler_enable must be set to 0 when using this directive".

I was reading those docs over and over trying to find a solution, I'd like
to possibly help someone else out!

Yip yip,
