All the languages I mentioned have profiling hooks for "end programmers"
using the language, of varying usability and accuracy.

That is different from the kind of profiling
that language implementors need, which ideally would allow for
easy delving into the behavior of the runtime (typically C functions)
in addition to the language-level profiling. This would be complemented
by things like VM instruction histogramming, and introspection into
other counters (the moral equivalent of oracle's V$ tables).

In the case of a proprietary language like java, this lack of public
implementor tools is understandable, as such tools represent a competitive
advantage for VM implementors. For example, the implementors of the microsoft VM
and the implementors of the sun VM have each created completely different
private interfaces for performance instrumentation of their own VMs.
