I offered some ideas in my last message.  In addition, I would like to see profile and trace documentation to converge to similar structure and use similar terminology.  In particular, I don't like "Run *cmd* under control of the Trace object" because Trace is not a debugger and does not "control" the execution.  I think the explanation at http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/profile.html#cProfile.run is better.  On the other hand, I like "Programming Interface" as the title of the API section better than "Reference Manual" in profile docs.  I hope we can change both trace and profile sections and retain the best choices.

priority: high -> normal
