Roll on 5.10 because I think that all the known bugs are fixed in Devel::DProf
Some are core fixes that are not binary compatible, and could well have been
the cause of segfaults. (I don't remember any clear bug reports on the SEGVs,
but in turn I suspect that they are really really hard to reproduce reliably
on small examples)
