It bothers me that the Apple's Dtrace port doesn't have the -G flag. We chose the current approach for simplicity and at the same time allowing us to easily introduce a generic framework so other OSes can plug in a similar tool if needed. I have yet to review your patch in detail, but I hope it doesn't break this generic framework. More later...
