TallySends and spyOn: measure two very different quantities, but broken down in the same who-called-who format.  SpyOn: (and the more recent version (not live right now -- sorry) is approximate, but more indicative of real time spent, whereas tallySends is exact and a precise record of how many times each method got executed.
