Since profile/cProfile CLI interface prints a sorted list of stats, using head to limit output to the most relevant entries should be a fairly natural thing to do. Unfortunately, BrokenPipeError isn't caught, causing quite a bit of pollution to the output:

$ python3 -m cProfile -m http.server -h | head
usage: http.server [-h] [--cgi] [--bind ADDRESS] [--directory DIRECTORY]

positional arguments:
  port                  Specify alternate port [default: 8000]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --cgi                 Run as CGI Server
  --bind ADDRESS, -b ADDRESS

BrokenPipeError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe
Exception ignored in: <_io.TextIOWrapper name='<stdout>' mode='w' encoding='utf-8'>
BrokenPipeError: [Errno 32] Broken pipe

I think the exception should be caught in order to suppress this noise.
