Hmm.. any chance it can be used for non-system-wide analysis? I think
tool should provide a way to do it if it's a valid usecase. And adding
-a option when recording doesn't look too hard. :)

Please just add -a/--system-wide (maybe use can make it default if no
argument/workload is given like perf top does) then tool will provide
the --no-* option automatically.
