web.profiler has unexpected behavior in python 2.5

Bug Description

pstats.py was changed either in python 2.4 or 2.5 to print out to it's own self.stream which is pointed at sys.stdout when the object is first initialized. This break the capturestdout class with web.profiler. The sys.stdout needs to be redirected before the object is created:

class Profile:
    Profiles `func` and returns a tuple containing its output
    and a string with human-readable profiling information.

        >>> import time
        >>> out, inf = profile(time.sleep)(.001)
        >>> out
        >>> inf[:10].strip()
        'took 0.0'
    def __init__(self, func):
        self.func = func
    def __call__(self, *args): ##, **kw): kw unused
        import hotshot, hotshot.stats, tempfile ##, time already imported
        temp = tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile()
        prof = hotshot.Profile(temp.name)

        stime = time.time()
        result = prof.runcall(self.func, *args)
        stime = time.time() - stime

        from cStringIO import StringIO
        # Not threadsafe!
        out = StringIO()
        oldstdout = sys.stdout
        sys.stdout = out
                stats = hotshot.stats.load(temp.name)
                stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')
                x = '\n\ntook '+ str(stime) + ' seconds\n'
                x += out.getvalue()
                sys.stdout = oldstdout
        return result, x

The above patch does the work of capturestdout also. Here is much cleaner fix.

def print_stats():
    stats = hotshot.stats.load(temp.name)
    stats.sort_stats('time', 'calls')

x = '\n\ntook '+ str(stime) + ' seconds\n'
x += capturestdout(print_stats)()
