Humm, its a nice hack, but it would be even better if it didn't showed
it as if it was really a group:

Samples: 20 of event 'anon group { cycles, instructions }', Event count (approx.): 4712980

It would be better to instead add another condition to the evlist that
would trigger the view with all the examples...

I'm applying it anyway, as it is useful, but would be nice to have the
same output except for that header, that should read instead:

Samples: 20 of non grouped events: cycles, instructions, Event count (approx.): 4712980
