Probably should be logged.  I don't see how it could be done visually.

Does this happen on *all* deployed systems?  This seems like too much
information... *especially*  SQL queries.

I smell security hole :)

It is a bigger problem than you think.  you would really need to put
this debug code into every taglib.  It makes *much* more sense to just
put JServ or Tomcat (with Cocoon and your web app) into a performance
analysis/profile tool like JProbe or OptimizeIt.

I could see a quick taglib that you could put at the begining and end of
an XSP file to time the whole thing... that would be easy enough.
