It is, and to be honest I detest the whole --format option. But its
already there and I really want to make use of global parameters in
order to recycle options that are benchmark-specific. What I'd really
like is to replace it with --silent and just have perf spit out the raw
data (for scripting). But that would be too disruptive to users, imho.
Does it matter? I dunno.
