The main objection that I have to it is that it is an extension  
mechanism that is only used by llvm-prof that makes the asmwriter  
(slightly) more complicated.  I think it would be better to refactor  
the asmwriter so that it can be driven in a more fine grained way,  
which would then allow clients to intersperse whatever information  
they want into it.  This is very similar to the "live interval index"  
stuff that David Greene wanted on the MachineFunction printer.
