Search the code base for uses of DYNAMIC_EXECUTION_PROFILE.  Facilities are
there for getting accounts of both single bytecode dynamic frequency, and of
bytecode pair dynamic frequency.

As to whether it's "minor" or not, of course it depends on the exact
programs you're measuring.  There's never been a good reason to believe this
one isn't minor <wink>.
