    Btw., if you touch that code, would you be interested in adding a
    --user-events kind of option which would have the implicit effect of
    adding :u to every event that is listed (or implied)? (and a
    --kernel-events counterpart, for :k)

    The reason is that right now there's no easy way to run say 'perf
    stat -ddd' but measure userspace events only.

    [ perf record --repeat would be nice as well :-) And a pony! ]
