Let's do it.

On a few conditions:

- You will write a short tutorial of how to write profiling scripts with

- You will write a little bunch of Dogtail scripts that will help us
profile particularly slow operations (opening the panel menu, doing
stuff in Evolution)

- Sun will write the dtrace scripts to figure out why/how enabling a11y
is a performance problem for the desktop:  a11y does a lot of IPC, and
profiling that is hard unless you have something like dtrace.
