This is a new way to control perf, its important that we try to reuse
the same concepts as in the pre-existing forms of interaction, so as to
reduce the learning curve for using this control mode.

I.e. this 'enable' should be as equivalent to the -e argument as
possible, for what makes sense for a pre-existing, already configured
event.

For _adding_ new ones, that we probably will want next, then its even
more important to reuse the same -e parser :-)

Thanks!
