Yes, I would say so.


Was never an official feature, also I did not see an obvious alternative

Apart from that, hotshot is now unmaintained and might be removed

We still have the cProfile Profiler. It seems that hotshots focus was
on faster profiling, but I don't see an issue here, since nobody runs
a profiler in his production environments.

Best regards,
