[Vm-dev] DTrace for Squeak?

Has anybody considered adding a DTrace user space provider to the VM?

This could be very helpful for debugging and profiling (at least on  
Mac; I don't know about DTrace for Linux).

My man pages on OS X describe the same approach for adding probes to a  
C program as in http://blogs.sun.com/ahl/entry/user_land_tracing_gets_better

Ruby, Java, Perl, PHP and others have such high-level providers.
