Hmmm, the visualization itself seems like it will be very messy on
implementation deisions.


How about a visualization where you see the code and animation over
it, with smooth zooming where needed (out and then in, not just up or
down, that works better to show the user where in the code the result
is), and for stuff that can't be found in the code, just have the text
zoom towards the viewer while becoming transparent until it escapes
the screen?


Easy to do if you know a bit of OpenGL.


Great to follow along.


The Ruby part is easy since writing profilers is so trivial in Ruby.


It'll greatly benefit the community. IMHO.


Anyone up for it?
