Currently, the exclude/include profile properties only work to the class level. It would be nice if they could go down to the method level.

Note: it might be advisable to provide this only for excludes and not includes. Excluding a method call is straight forward. However, included method calls will only show up in the profile if the calling package/class/method is included. This could be the source of a lot of confusion, so I think it might be wise to avoid providing it.

    yes i agree on the first point: fine grained filtering would be cool,...
    err, also for pragmatics: it improves overview and performance of the profiler.
    So i can only encourage you to implement this feature.

    for the second point:
    hm... i would just say com.mentorgen.**.getCoolStuff()
    if i want the getCoolStuff-method of a certain package or class.
