The profile shouldn't be restricted to one language parser. Our idea: all of 
them. The part of the tool that read the profile (called the profiler - see 
the API posted earlier) and feeds it to a backend that can be bash, perl, 
python or others. We'll have to work out these details still, but that's the 
idea at least.
