WebKit could benifit from a JavaScript profiler

bdash and I just spent a while talking about JS/Web tools that we'd like to see to better support web developers using Safari/WebKit.  One which came out of that discussion was a JavaScript profiler.

This would ideally be a shark-like profiler, which could tell you exactly where you were spending all of your time in JavaScript code.  Shark even offers suggestions as to how to improve your code, this could too.

This tool might be part of a larger WebKit IDE, or it might be separate.

This bug serves to facilitate discussion surrounding the creation of such a tool.
