Some plugins (most of Valgrind tools, gprof and gcov, for example) rely on the original binary to display info in the view, such as line numbers and function names. This means we would have to whether save a snapshot of the profiled binary along with profile results or get all the info we need from the binary and save it.

That's a valid concern.

gprof and gcov plugin just verify if the binary file is newer than profiling file, and emit a warning in this case.

According to my users, it's enough.
(Users will save themself the binary file if needed).
