first I thought we should follow the --switch-output 'xxx' way,
but then you need to specify an event, so I guess --switch-output-event
is better

it's getting bigger, I wonder we should put all the sb_* setup in
separated functions like sb_start/sb_stop

hum, it looks like this jump is not necessay and can be avoided
by some bool checks.. could we add some bool when --switch-output-event
is used, so we don't depend on wether rec->sb_evlist was allocated for
whatever reason?
