I did think about this mail.  In particular, the parts about faster
union building.  So my response was about making profiles faster
without having to figure out how to split profiles -- neither manually
(see suggestion about automatic profile splitting) nor automatically
(see O(n²) vs. O(n lg n) union-build).

Until the previous mail, I have not seen anything about thematic
profiles, so I did not have thematic profiles in mind in my response.
Even then, I'm not sure what these thematic profiles are supposed to
solve that is not working around some underlying problem (e.g. slow
profile building times).
