Nice.. the instruction dump would have been very handy when debugging the PCR
init issue I had a month or so back.

What happens if we get a sudden flood of these from different processes that
overlap their output? Are we going to be able to match up the process with
instruction dump?

Should we prefix every line with the PID to avoid this?
