To clarify, systemtap is "available for most programs" on fedora, to
the extent that most C or C++ programs can be probed with systemtap,
including those without <sys/sdt.h> compiled-in stuff.  For example:

   probe process("a.out").function("foobar") { log($$parms$$) }
   probe process("a.out").statement("*@file.c:100-200") { log($$vars$$) }

There is also some support for interpreters like java and python too.
