 Mike is absolutely right, but he is talking about usual system
function. In our case we are in engineering mode; we're not talking
about a single profile target, but systematically using  a certain
queue if the system in CM-off mode for a long length of time. Imagine
you have a printer with strange new hardware hanging off that queue,
you spend a lot of time feeding it various bit pattern tests before
you even think of profiling it.  Profiling takes 5 minutes. The stuff
before takes a very long time.
