Profiling class-based views

Just a quick note for profiling e.g. Zope views:

class MyView(object):
    def __call__(self):
        result = {}
        cProfile.runctx('result["x"] = super(Body, self).__call__()',
                        globals(), locals(), '/tmp/viewprofile')
        return result['x']

Even though “exec ‘result = super(…) in globals(), locals()’ works, it seems that cProfile does something a little differently here, so that writing to a local variable is not possible.
