Little things that matter in language design
FWIW, last time I tried, perfmon2 seemed to be way too slow to be usable for fine-grained testing,
so I'm not too unhappy if it doesn't win. Perfctr w/PAPI seems the way to go at the moment.
Dueling performance monitors

I find it to be easier to use and generate much better results than the alternatives.
Though I agree, as long as *some* performance monitor implementation gets merged I'll be happy. I'd prefer that it were perfmon, as I've spent a lot of work getting MIPS r10k, SPARC, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, and Athlon wokring and it would be a shame to have to go through and get yet another performance counter infrastructure up to speed with all of the platforms I need.
