Painful though hotshot can be at times, I occasionally find it extremely
useful to zoom in on trouble spots.  I haven't used profile in awhile and
haven't tried lsprof yet.  I would think having something readily available
(whether in the standard library or not) would be handy when needed,
hopefully with nothing more than "python setup.py install" required to make
it available.
