That's not on the right place. This is going to print the events even
when we launch scripts. We only want to print them when we launch
perf script without a script, which falls back to printing events
(look at default_scripting_ops).

Like I suggested you, it's better to extend struct
scripting_ops::process_event()
to take the whole event and let the handler decide what to do.
Python and Perl scripting engines can just extract the raw sample and
do like they did before.
But print_event(), which is the process_event() handler for the
default_scripting_ops,
can handle the new printing features.

That's also more flexible, this lets Python and Perl scripting engines
be extendable
to handle the rest of the event later.
