I never look at any of the generated files, so we don't need keepGenerated
to be true.  Some of the labels that get spit out by mlprof will only make
sense after looking at the .s files, but if someone wants to read through
those files, they can easily compile with -keep g.

The file format and all seems to be fine.  It should only take a couple of
hours (if not less) to fix up the newer version of mlprof.  I'll let Steve
integrate this profiling support, and if he can post a snapshot this
afternoon, I should be able to polish of mlprof in the early evening.
