This would resolve the problems, yes. It's a nice approach to take, 
and it also allows the object to register a different method to be

Call it "gorilla-patching" - it's like monkey-patching.[1]

This would suggest that the CallProfiler shouldn't be an add-on product,
then, but installed in lib/python ? What's the best approach there?
