sorry for late reply.. I was on vacation last week..

I read the rasd sources and realized we could poke this
from another angle.. AFAIU the work the rasd does is following:
- reads config file and opens configured tracepoints
- reads samples comming from those tracepoints and displays/writes
this data to the console/file
- is there more?

If I'm not missing anything, this is quite usefull/common usage
pattern which would deserve new perf command.

I can see the analogy with ftrace debugfs interface
- choose/enable tracepoints
- cat .../tracing/trace-pipe

and there could be '-d' for the command to act as daemon.

thoughts? ;-)
