Kernel Analyzer As Library Call?

Hello everyone... first, I'm very happy that I got performance data via GPUPerf on Linux... I'd like to now ask if it is possible to get access to the data from the Kernel Analyzer as a library call?  In particular... what I want to be able to do is write a tool that will take my own kernel, check with SKA what the performance should be... and then compare with what is gathered by GPUPerf to show what percentage is really obtained (with appropriate sample data supplied).

Is there any chance of getting some performance estimates, just as a library, from my kernels?  I believe that this feature will really allow me to do some serious performance tuning on my code!!
