How would I submit such a document?  As JIRA issue?

I've started to look at things, and were able to look at the Cocoon
profiler things with "forrest run" in site-author/.  Quite a number of
things were already present within Forrest, but required some tweaking
on my machine.  Here's what I did:

- replace the "profiler" matches with "profile.html" in profiler.xmap
and sitemap.xmap

- move the "profile.html" match up in the pipeline, before the
"*.html" match in sitemap.xmap

- add the profiler roles in forrest-core.xconf

- replace the caching and noncaching pipelines with their profiling
counterparts; that is, the pipeline is still named "caching," but uses

Currently, I am wondering about three things:
- How can the top level pipes be replaced with their profiling
counterparts, without too much hassle?  They can, and probably should,
keep their name "caching" and "noncaching."  The rest would probably
fit easily within a plugin.

- The profiling document uses parameters for individual profiling
results, for example ".../profile.html?key=-3752097465161278089."
Not sure what this means for static site generation.

- For static site generation, profile.html would need to be the
last page generated.
