I've clarified this with Rommel -- the quick summary is:

* There is no guide-like documentation for the profiler.

* But it's really very simple to use (for most cases).  For example:

    > (define (fib n) (if (<= n 1) n (+ (fib (- n 1)) (fib (- n 2)))))
    > (require profile)
    > (profile (fib 33))

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
