As I understand it, Fedora has systemtap but not dtrace (/usr/bin/dtrace
is a shim to systemtap), so does this mean that *systemtap* static
probes will be available for use when tracing php?  If so, that sounds
great, but it would probably be best to spell that out on the feature

I see docs on DTrace within PHP here:

This blog post has some information on PHP and Systemtap:

Is that the kind of thing that this aspect of the feature is hoping to
add?  If so, it's probably worth adding a link like the above to the
feature page.

Thanks; hope this is helpful
