I thought about:

    perf stat -e +power/energy-pkg/ -a -- sleep 1

Which would have its counterpart:

    perf stat -e -cycles -0a --sleep 1

To remove an event from the defaults, perhaps to deal with some specific
hardware where the default or what is in -d, -dd, -ddd, etc can't all be
counted. I.e. - and + would remove or add from whaver list was there at
that point.
