Also, the profile should behave as if each request is processed in full
before the next one is examined. I.e., a request to search a database
followed by one to delete records in that database should not delete
anything before the search is complete. Of course, if you have
independent operations, it's possible to implement such things in a more
efficient way, but that's the intent.
