Runtime-based sequence diagram generator?


One of my favorite bits of AQtime has always been the Sequence Diagram generator. However, because it is a static analysis tool, and because my current projects are interface-based and utilize dependency injection, the sequence diagrams are of little value. The analysis ends at the interface points, understandably without resolving code paths into the implementing classes.

I'd like to suggest adaption of the generator, or creation of a new profiler that would create sequence diagrams built from the run-time information of a profiling session, where you can actually track the code paths through implementing classes to create meaningful sequence diagrams.
