i would consider gprof a tool to optimize an application - but its a
little hard to profile an API with it. different apps will produces
different results and so using gprof with certain apps (mainstream)
results in _exaclty_ what you dont want (what transgaming does?).
thinking about it - also using the benchmarks as a mark is the same
(isnt that what all the driver developers do?).
but having winetests, that also do certain things (lets say application
"patterns") and then time them is IMHO a Good Thing - it can be coded
into the winetest framework, which already runs the tests on real
windows and on wine - then also time it and compare it.
especially in the directx area this would be good to compare to windows
(even if its sometimes simply not fair - if e.g. sound mixing is done in
hardware under windows and in the cpu on wine).
