About those 10 lines of codes:
It use the 'with' keyword so it is not compatible with python2.4 & Zope2.9
It use pyprof2calltree to convert stats to calltree (kcachegrind)
It less flexible than ZopeProfiler (no configuration, no way to save
multiple stats (filename is hardcoded))
You must modify the code (it s a decorator)

So it's not help me in this case but thanks for pointing me out this
decorator, it can help me for other use cases
