I'm half-inclined to just write a single function that can take either
a stream or pstream name.  It could return -1 if it's not valid for
either, 0 if probes aren't needed, 1 if they are.  Then you could just
use one function call, something like "if (!probes_needed(name))
interval = 0;".

Something tells me you didn't test this assertion:

Should we update any documentation or NEWS?
