Hi Zifei,

The dynamic instrumentation project is very interesting indeed. I also
think it could be doable as a GSoC project. Do you have any plan on
how you would integrate dyninst with UST?

Also, a quick reminder that the GSoC application for student is open
until May 3rd. Don't forget to send us your proposal :)!
