The profiler runs every time a page is rendered.

No, that's not possible. What you can do is to wrap the code of yours
that you want to profile into:

    MessageTally spyOn: [ ... ]

This will open a profile (within the image) every time you refresh the page.

WAProfileToolPlugin is just the link in the toolbar. Seaside collects
all toolbar-plugins by iterating over the subclasses of WAToolPlugin.
That's why there is no direct reference.
