It looks that you've done several big modifications such as
1. color filters are applied only once
2. per packet protocol list
3. an others

I'm interested in:

1. how do you do profiling?
2. which modifications contribute most?
3. Is there any plan to merge some improvements to trunk?

For the last one, I find one of your posts in 2007 said you did have a plan, but due to bugzilla's issues, you did not submit them. What's the latest status of this plan now?
