This is an amazing idea! I'd love the fact to be able to add breakpoints
inside the configuration file. Another thing which would help debugging
performance issues, would be the ability to add "tracepoints" to the config
file, which for instance would add counters to the stats interface.

Thanks for this, it will be very valuable
