I like this, but could you also extend this to perf-record? its a bit
odd to diverge between the two.

Using Stephane's latest syntax changes you could actually do something

perf record -e task-clock:freq=1000,cycles:period=0

Which would create a group with 1 sampling counter and a counting
counter (at which point we should probably start flipping

Matt was working on supporting that (although not through cmdline
syntax) and teaching perf-report to cope with such output.
