Profile and cProfile's documentation does not say anything about the builtins parameter.
Also, it exists only on cProfile, which means Profile is not a drop-in replacement.
Lastly, enable() method, that exists on cProfile, also accepts params, and are undocumented.

I verified the statements and notice that profile.Profile has many methods not in cProfile.Profile.  Neither is a complete replacement for the other.
