Be careful of the implicit context

Sorry but 'can be done' is very different from 'can be done usefully' i.e. with DTrace a sysadmin can do the disk profile on a live production system, AFAIK Valgrind cannot do this..
Note that I'm not criticising Valgrind which is a very useful tool, just that the great selling point of DTrace is that it can do systemic tracing on live production system, so sure you can do many things with CPU simulators but it's quite out of topic/context..
