That's all described in the next patch. But I can copy the description.

It would be fairly complicated to interface that with event lists, and
also still wouldn't work with standard perf stat.

nicely with the existing frame work. If we wanted more complex
formulas something with python would be probably needed, but I don't see
the need yet.
