I extrapolate this to mean that it can be useful to help quantify the at least part of the MPIT's own overhead (as I typed that sentence, I'm not sure how much of MPIT's overhead will be measurable by simply timing how long its individual function calls...?  I guess there's other metrics that can be measured, too...?).

Statistical clock-profiling could do it without any interface in the 
So it is probably not worth putting it in.  It's a trade-off between 
and performance and complexity.

Even having argued that it's nice to be able to observe, I'm happy with
not adding the extra complexity.
