Is there any profiling information about the costs of generating
debugging output?

By that I mean the relative costs of generating the debugging lines,
writing them to a file/displaying on a console.

If the cost of generating the lines is insignificant compared to normal
Wine non-debugged operation, then I have an suggestion of a way to
proceed. I also have  tested ANSI C code that I've used in other
projects and which may  be useful.
