[xdebug-general] Dynamically Loading Xdebug

Is it possible to dynamically load xdebug in a php script? My use
case is I am using phpunit with hudson on some CI jobs, and would like
to have one job generate code coverage statistics nightly. But, if I
load xdebug all the time then this will slow down all the jobs that
don't need it (99% of the other jobs). So, it would be nice if I
could load xdebug only when I need to do code coverage stats.

I've tried using the deprecated dl() function, and also the -d and -z
php flags but has no luck. Now I'm thinking maybe I need to start php
with a seperate ini file for this case.

So, is this possible? Or am I being dumb and there's actually a much
better way to do this?
