The patch adds a --profile switch and the default --monitor.  --monitor
works like previous.  --profile prints out the output of timeofday along
with the message attributes.  Collabora is using this to profile D-Bus
calls and are writing a suite of tools to visualize the output.

A patch is forthcoming (which will be posted on the list) to fix the
method return and error messages not being caught by eavesdropping
rules.  That one will be a little more invasive so most likely will have
to wait until 1.0.1.  A workaround is to edit the session.conf and add
{send,receive}_requested_reply rules.
